About The Ministry

Mercy Ships is a global charity that was founded in 1978 by Don Stephens and Deyon Stephens. The organization operates the largest non-governmental hospital ship in the world, providing free health care, community development, agriculture and water projects, mental health programs, AIDS/HIV prevention and care to terminally ill patients in developing nations around the world, with a focus on Africa. Their current flagship, the Africa Mercy, is docked in Cotonou, Benin, West Africa and will remain there until October 2009. Mercy Ships has chosen to follow the 2,000 year-old model of Jesus: the blind see, the lame walk, the mute speak, and the Good News (the nature and character of a loving God) is proclaimed and demonstrated among the poor. Mercy Ships welcomes individuals that seek to engage in our mission of hope either by volunteering with our Crew or in the sharing of personal relationships and resources. Mercy Ships is anchored by its International Operations Center (IOC) located in Garden Valley, Texas. Mercy Ships also has national offices in 17 nations worldwide including Spain, Britain, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, South Africa and Australia. Mercy Ships also operates two land-based centers in Sierra Leone. The West Africa Fistula Centre, Sierra Leone serves over 5,000 children per year and provides surgical services for vesico-vaginal fistulas. The New Steps Centre provides rehabilitative services and distributes wheelchairs and other mobility devices.
