Thank you to all of our donors! Whether you donated directly to The Smith Engineering Mercy Ships Fund or participated in our charity golf tournaments YOU helped us raise over $135,000!

The Smith Engineering water purification system is providing the purified water necessary to run the New Global Mercy’s laboratories and surgical rooms.

The Global Mercy is built with your help.

The Global Mercy™, is the world’s largest civilian hospital ship, capable of more than doubling the Mercy Ships surgical and training capacity. Over her 50 year expected lifespan, more than 150,000 lives are estimated to be changed onboard through surgery alone!

Let’s help build a Mercy Ship!

Smith Engineering was contracted to build a highly customized water treatment system for the new Mercy Ship, Global Mercy. Mercy Ships is an international non-profit medical care organization. Their ships operate with an all-volunteer crew to provide medical care to the world’s poorest countries.

Smith Engineering’s equipment is providing purified water to the six surgical suites and laboratories aboard the new ship, assisting a crew of 641 personnel in bringing state of the art medical care to parts of the world that have no access to healthcare. Our goal was to raise money towards the cost of the water purification system. With the help of our donors we raised over $135,000.  Please take a moment to watch this video.
