Mercy Ships to Launch Hospital Ship Allie Martin

Mercy Ships Ministries is preparing to expand its fleet of hospital ships — an expansion the founder of the ministry says will permit Mercy Ships to have an even greater outreach to those in medical need around the globe. The Africa Mercy is undergoing sea trials, in preparation for service in the ministry’s fleet of hospital ships.

MercyShips.org says upon completion, Africa Mercy is tentatively for field assignment in Liberia. Source: Journal Cheriton
