Amazing medical reconstruction


Nineteen year old Bernard underwent reconstructive surgery to remove the growth on his face that had been there for more than a decade. The surgery took place on a ship known as Africa Mercy. “When I was told it was possible to have surgery, I had a feeling of euphoria I can’t even explain!” Thank you for helping make incredible transformations like this possible!

Mercy Ships is an international charity currently operating the largest non-governmental hospital ship in the world, providing humanitarian aid like free health care, community development projects, community health education, mental health programs, agriculture projects, and palliative care for terminally ill patients. In addition to providing free surgical, medical and dental care, Mercy Ships is committed to investing in local healthcare infrastructure in ways that will continue to have a positive impact long after the ship leaves port. By developing medical facilities on land and training local personnel, Mercy Ships ensures that increased medical care can be provided after the ship departs from its host country.
