Mercy Ships is a global charity that has operated hospital ships in developing nations since 1978.
Mercy Ships brings hope and healing to the forgotten poor by mobilizing people and resources worldwide, and serving all people without regard for race, gender, or religion.
Short-term crew can volunteer from two weeks to two years depending on the position and typically fill service roles or very specialized medical or technical positions.
The ability to utilize professional volunteers as Crew allows Mercy Ships to maximize our donor support and serve those who need help the most.
Our Vision: To be recognized as the most effective organization at providing opportunities for volunteers to help survivors of natural disasters.
