Mercy Ships exists to address the critical shortage of health care services in some of the world's least developed and poorest countries.
Mercy Ships operates a 16,000 tonne hospital ship which provides free medical surgeries to the poorest nations of the earth. Manned by volunteer doctors, dentists, nurses and other health care professionals, the Africa Mercy performs life-saving surgery for thousands of patients each year.
Mercy Ships is currently responding to the needs of the Republic of Guinea, serving for 10 months in Conakry from August 2012 until June 2013. It is the fourth time that Mercy Ships has visited Guinea.

More than 7000 FREE surgeries are performed each year on the Africa Mercy. This is made possible by the goodwill of the VOLUNTEER medical and support staff who pay their way to the ship and the generous contributions of supporters in the developed world.
Join us as we bring HOPE and HEALING to the world's forgotten poor. Enjoy your visit!
