Your gift goes further

Alongside financial donations given towards our Mercy Ships programmes which provide surgeries and world-class medical care in Africa, twice as much is received through the combination of generous gift-in-kind from corporate sponsors and services provided by our volunteer crew who pay for the privilege of serving onboard. This model also helps us to provide hope and healing at no charge to our patients and their families.
