Mercy Ships Overview

The members of the board of the Graves Foundation are proud of all the Foundations contributions, but are particularly proud of our funding of a program in partnership with Baylor Scott White Heath Care of Texas. This program pays to send Baylor doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals to serve on Mercy Ships, the largest non-military hospital ship in the world. Mercy Ships sails into various ports along the West Coast of Africa and provides free medical care to the afflicted poor.

This video includes a discussion by Don Stevens, the founder of the Mercy Ship strategy, which is to sail a modern day hospital ship into a port in an undeveloped country, allowing volunteer medical staff to meet the dire needs of the poor.

We call it following Jesus' teachings innovatively.
