Nat Geo has produced an amazing documentary series on Mercy Ships called “The Surgery Ship”.
More than 70% of the world’s population cannot access essential surgery. For many, the hospital ship Africa Mercy is their last hope. On board, a crew of world -class medical volunteers from across the globe face the biggest challenges of their lives, working to provide lifesaving surgery to those with nowhere else to turn.
You can view clips from the documentary series here: http://www.nationalgeographic.co.uk/video/tv/surgery-ship

The 24th Nov, 1 Dec and 8 Dec are the upcoming dates for the episodes.
The National Geographic channel is available in the UK on Sky Channel 526, Virgin Media Channel 266 (215 in Ireland), BT/Plusnet/TalkTalk Channel 317 and Sky Go.
