Mercy Ships joins the Humane Charities List

Humane Research Australia administers the Humane Charities List - a guide to health-related charities that do not engage in animal research. 

The charities listed vary greatly in the health-related aspects they offer; some fund biomedical research, others provide health services to people requiring care, and many provide information and support. The one thing they share is a vision for improved human health.

Humane Charities is therefore delighted to welcome the inclusion of a new charity to the List -  Mercy Ships.

Founded in 1978 Mercy Ships uses hospital ships to deliver free, world-class health care services, capacity building and sustainable development aid to those without access in the developing world.  Each year, more than 1,200 volunteers from over 40 nations serve with Mercy Ships. Professionals including surgeons, dentists, nurses, health care trainers, teachers, cooks, seamen, engineers, and agriculturalists donate their time and skills to the effort.  

By donating to a Humane Charity on the list such as Mercy Ships, you will be directing vital funding towards organisations that do not fund animal testing.

The List of humane charities is available at  or download the free app – for instructions -
