Take a Tour of the World’s Largest Civilian Hospital Ship

Are you ready to experience something special?

Imagine a floating hospital with one mission – to bring hope and healing through free surgery and training. A ship where hundreds of thousands of lives will be changed forever. Onboard, the blind will see. Children will walk on straight legs for the very first time. Patients will have life-threatening tumors removed.

It’s a one-of-a-kind operation on a historic hospital ship. The Global Mercy is getting ready for her first service in Africa. And you’re invited to come onboard and discover it all for yourself.

From February 26 to March 14, 2022, the Global Mercy will visit the Port of Rotterdam. This is your opportunity to experience the adventure with your own eyes — both in person and online. If you’re participating virtually, you’ll have a chance to hear stories straight from speakers from around the world and join in with online events in real time.
