Intro to Mercy Ships

Africa Spirit, the world’s largest floating hospital, connects skilled medical professionals with the world’s neediest people,  many of whom do not have access to medical personnel, facilities, clean water and electricity. Mercy Ships has impacted more than 17 million people through delivery of medical services, including life-saving surgeries and training to strengthen medical capacity in the African continent. 

The TK Foundation is a proud supporter of Mercy Ships,  <granting more than $2.7 million/sharing grants> that enable technical training to Mercy Ships crew since 2007Additionally, this year (2018), The TK Foundation has expanded its support <with a three-year, $5 million/grant> for construction of the J. Torben Karlshoej Bridge onboard the newest of Mercy Ships’ fleet: The Global Mercy.
