The world’s largest civilian hospital ship, the GLOBAL MERCY, was delivered to the charity organization Mercy Ships in June.


The GLOBAL MERCY has been built at the Tianjin Xingang shipyard in northern China under the project management of Stena RoRo.

The ship is in the last leg of the journey to the Port of Antwerp, where she will be further equipped and crewed.  The ship is scheduled to arrive on 12 September in Belgium (Antwerp) and remain until early next year.

Volunteers from home and abroad will set up and finish the private hospital ship. This includes the installation of medical equipment and IT systems, as well as the supply and crewing of the ship for its first mission.
