A gift in your Will for Mercy Ships
A legacy gift for Mercy Ships can help create a bright future for children, young people and adults, long- suffering from treatable conditions, freeing them from their pain, disability or disfigurement and giving them a joyful homecoming, returning to school, work, family and community!
Your legacy gift can save the life of children like Djaliou.
When she brought her five month old son to Mercy Ships, Djaliou's mother, Sara told us, "My son will die without surgery please help him live." Djaliou received the free surgery needed to remove a tumour mass on his tongue, and today is a happy boy with a long, healthy life ahead of him.
Your gift can help desperate people like Sambany, who had lived for two-thirds of his life of over sixty years with a growing tumour on his face and neck. He heard about Mercy Ships on the radio and six friends helped carry him for two days to reach the ship. His 7.46 kg tumour was successfully removed in a long and complicated operation. After recovery and to the surprise of many he was able to return home to his wife, relieved of the burden he had carried for around forty years.
A legacy of improved health services is left by the hospital ship, Africa Mercy after each port visit, due to training and professional mentoring given by Mercy Ships medical teams. Your legacy gift can help build capacity in local health services and in sharing knowledge, skills and good practice in hospitals in Africa.
Help us to equip a new hospital-ship to impact more lives. In 2021 a new 'ship of mercy' will serve alongside Africa Mercy to save and change tens of thousands more lives, and to provide mentoring, training and education for many more local medical and healthcare professionals.
Your legacy gift for Mercy Ships can have a lasting impact for many future generations!

Leave a Legacy of Hope and Mercy
The legacy brochure shows how a legacy gift can make a world of difference for patients desperately in need of surgery to free them from life threatening and life destroying conditions. Hospital ships transform lives, bringing a cargo of mercy with a crew of professional volunteers ready to provide surgery and aftercare which are otherwise not accessible for most people in West Africa; and to mentor and train local medical and healthworkers. Hospitals and clinics are renovated, building capacity in the local health service.
In 2021 a new hospital-ship will come into service, and your legacy of continuing compassion can help Mercy Ships to bring hope for many more patients.
The brochure answers many 'frequently asked questions' about making a will and how we can help you in the process, with information about how you can take advantage of a professional, free will-writing service without any obligation.
