Their ship, the Africa Mercy, is the world’s largest charitable floating hospital. With three-quarters of the world’s population living within 150km of a port city, the floating hospital can reach people who live with little or no healthcare in some of the poorest parts of the world.

No local hospital facilities are required in-country, because the ship itself is a hospital, with five state-of-the-art operating theatres and all the facilities needed to carry out life-changing treatments. It provides a safe, clean, controlled environment, ideally suited for both patients and crew.

Almost all their staff are volunteers. They have a team of nurses, doctors, surgeons, and other crew members from all over the world, donating their time to help on board the world’s largest non-governmental floating hospital.

With the help of their supporters, who contribute towards essential medical supplies and ship repairs, they have helped to transform the lives of more than 2½ million people in the poorest countries of the world since 1978.
