  2. 2. Who we are We are a team of nurses, doctors, surgeons, and other crew members from all over the world, donating our time to help on board the world’s largest non- governmental floating hospital. As a floating hospital, we can sail directly to some of the world’s poorest people to deliver life-saving medical care and provide safe, state-of-the-art facilities in which to treat them. Our supporters are a vital part of the team, paying for essential medical supplies and ship repairs. Together, we have helped transform the lives of more than 2.42 million people in the poorest countries of the world since 1978.

  5. 5. Mercy Ships Canada History Mercy Ships Canada legally incorporated as a society under the Societies Act of British Columbia in Victoria in 1989, but didn’t open a physical office until nine years later when Suzanne Sellers relocated from the International Operations Center in Texas to establish a Mercy Ships presence in Calgary, Alberta.
  6. 6. After a challenging start the Board elected to move the office to Victoria, BC, where a solid base of support already existed due to previous extended shipyard and dry dock work on the Anastasis in 1985 and 1986. Two visits of the Caribbean Mercy to Victoria in 1999 and 2000 helped put Mercy Ships on the map locally and nationally, allowing for increased staff and attracting more volunteers, board members, donors, active recruits, alumni, and media attention. The ship’s visit in 2003 to the east coast of Canada continued to solidify the national scope of Mercy Ships.
  7. 7. In 2003, Lorraine and Richard McDonald left their Anastasis home of 15 years to take on leadership of the Canadian office in Victoria. Since then Mercy Ships Canada has hosted many events, including black-tie galas, medical evenings with Mercy Ships doctors, executive luncheons, alumni reunions and golf tournaments. Staff members and volunteers have also worked to spread awareness of Mercy Ships across the country by presenting at service clubs, churches, schools and universities, missions and medical events, women’s groups, etc. The Canadian office is part of a global network of 16 land-based national offices that support the work of Mercy Ships International. Mercy Ships Canada’s charitable number is 89064-8249-RR0001
