Mercy Ships is a unique hospital ship charity

We have transformed the lives of more than 2.5 million people in the least developed countries for over 38 years. Amazing surgeons, nurses and other staff volunteer their services and pay for their own expenses so we can treat more people.


 

THE PROBLEM

Of the world’s population of 7.1 billion, 5 billion people cannot access essential surgery. That’s 70% of the entire population of the world.

In 2010, 16.9 million lives (32.9% of all deaths worldwide) were lost from conditions needing surgical care. This figure well surpassed the number of deaths from HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined.

In the absence of surgical care, common, easily treatable illnesses become diseases with high fatality rates.
