You always said “One day…”
Make that day today.

Together, we can make a difference.

For the last 30 years, Mercy Ships has brought safe, free surgical care and training to people in Africa who do not have access to medical care. Mercy Ships hospital ships are filled with doctors, nurses, mariners, day crew, and administrative support staff. By joining the team, you can make a meaningful mark and transform many lives.

Crew work on board hospital ships – the Global Mercy™ and the Africa Mercy® – while employees work from 16 national offices around the world, as well as an African Bureau based in Benin.




Day crew

The Mercy Ships crew includes volunteer professionals from over 60 nations across the world. Each crewmember finds themselves transformed as they experience work that is so much bigger than themselves.
