Cape Town hosted the world’s largest civilian hospital ship, „Africa Mercy“ which docked at the Waterfront on sep 29th. The vessel offered three open days from October 10 to 12 at Quay 6 outside Table Bay Hotel. Different than originally planned „Africa Mercy“ will sail for its next field service to Madagascar and not to Benin because of rapid expansion of Ebola epidemic in Western Africa. Field services were held in the Republic of Congo and more than 2,500 patiens have been doctored during its ten month stay in the last year.

The 1980 built vessel was originally launched as a ferryship „Dronning Ingrid“ serving the Baltic Sea for years before converted to a floating hospital. The „Africa Mercy“ is operated and stuffed by volunteers and provides medical care for free to humans across the African shore suffering from a variety of curable medical condition. It is fully equipped with five operation rooms and a modern hospital. Surgical operations are free of charge to all people who have no access to surgical health care.
