Mercy Ships is an international faith-based organization bringing hope and healing to the world’s forgotten poor. As many as 5 billion people lack access to safe, affordable surgical and anesthesia services worldwide, and less than 6% of all operations are delivered to the world’s poorest countries. Marginalized populations continue to suffer due to a lack of trained healthcare providers, inadequate infrastructure, and disproportionate out-of-pocket healthcare costs. Mercy Ships programs offer holistic support to developing countries, striving to make healthcare accessible for all. Since 1978, Mercy Ships has delivered services to more than 2.84 million beneficiaries. The countries served by Mercy Ships are ranked as the poorest in the world by the United Nations Human Development Index.
