Mercy Ships is an international, faith-based charity that delivers vital healthcare to the poorest places with their hospital ships. Its main aim is to provide first-world healthcare to the developing world so that they have access to services they deserve. The surgeons and nurses involved are all volunteers who strive to change lives that have been affected by abject poverty.
Why we chose Mercy Ships?
In low-income and lower-middle-income countries, nine out of ten people have no access to basic surgical care. Our charity hospital ships sail directly to these people to offer the medical care they need – for free! As this is a non-profit organisation, we believe such a great cause deserves everyone’s attention and efforts, which is why we have chosen it as our charity this year.
