Countless lives impacted

In just 217 days, the crew of the Africa Mercy worked together to provide life-transforming surgeries for more than 1,200 Malagasy people and dental care for over 5,000 people. This would not have been possible without your partnership.

When Mercy Ships performs one surgery, we’re not only freeing one person, we’re also freeing family members and caregivers who have had to change their lives to care for someone they love.

The family so often has suffered through listening to the ridicules directed at their loved ones. Communities are negatively impacted when diseases lurk in their midst.

Thanks to Mercy Ships, and especially to you, our donors, and volunteers around the world, that is no longer the case for the Malagasy people that received a free surgery this year aboard the Africa Mercy.
