Mercy Ships provides a safe place for surgical and medical aid for the world's most poverty-stricken countries.

Children, teens, adults all die from curable illnesses every day. Mercy Ships and its volunteers treat life-threatening tumours, cleft lip and palate repairs, plastic reconstruction for severe burn-related injuries, hernia repairs, cataract removal, correction for orthopaedic deformities (clubfoot, bowed legs and other severe abnormalities), obstetric fistula repair and dental care.

Thanks to a generous team of volunteers and donors, for as little as $25 a month you could help the crew on the Mercy Ship bring much-needed help to those who need it most.
