Geistlich Pharma supports the “Mercy Ships” charity
Geistlich Pharma has dedicated itself to regenerative medicine – for increased patient quality of life and for decades its research and development work has rigorously focussed on this.
By supporting “Mercy Ships”, Geistlich Pharma is providing financial aid to an international humanitarian aid organization with Swiss roots. Founded in 1978, the aid organization is dedicated to making free, first-class healthcare provision available to those in developing countries who cannot afford it, through hospital ships.
M/V Africa Mercy - ship of hope
On board the world’s biggest, privately operated floating clinic, the “Africa Mercy”, over 400 volunteers from more than 40 countries provide aid in the form of operations, dental treatment and education programs. The ship’s dimensions are impressive: its 152-metre length contains five operating theatres and 84 beds. Every year more than 1,600 volunteers sign up – surgeons, dentists, specialist nurses, health educators, teachers, cooks, sailors, engineers and agricultural experts give their time and skills free of charge. Mercy Ships has already helped more than 2.5 million children and adults to experience a better life.
