Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Sea Mercy was developed to deliver free critical care, disaster relief, and economic development programs for thousands of "at risk" remote islanders in the South Pacific. Sea Mercy's simple vision and mission is to "stand in the gap" with volunteer vessels, trained volunteers, support equipment, and critical care services until island nations can develop their "outer island" health care infrastructure.
In the South Pacific, there are no roads, power lines, or phone systems to connect the smaller, less populated, islands to the same services offered on the more populated, primary islands. Sadly, these remote islands are left without even the most basic of health care, disaster relief and economic development services. Sea Mercy and our international based volunteers deliver the health care services, provides professional and educational training of local citizens, and implements economic development programs.
Sea Mercy operates a fleet Floating Health Care Clinic (FHCC) staffed by US based health care volunteers serving the 1,000's of neglected remote islands of the South Pacific. The FHCC is a modified sailing catamaran that carries doctors, dentists, optometrist, nurses and the necessary medical supplies to these remote islands in order to deliver free services where there are no health care services available. Working directly with our island nation partner's local health care staff, our goal is to train them to eventually take over the FHCC operations.
Sea Mercy also operates a Global Mercy Armada (GMA) program that targets specific remote islands for economic development assistance. We send vessels, volunteers, equipment and supplies to assist the local citizens in implementing the much needed programs and help them to become self-sustaining and thriving communities.
We are currently working with the island nations of Fiji (100+ remote islands) and Tonga (50+ remote islands).
