The Mercy Ships Hospital Chaplaincy project provides care that enriches patients with dignity, justice, peace, and hope – a transformational development, a wholeness of life. Through counseling and active listening skills, the Mercy Ships Hospital Chaplaincy Team gives patients the opportunity to express their feelings and to share their personal story to begin the process of psychological and spiritual healing. Hospital Chaplains use a daily time of singing and sharing words of encouragement on the wards as a tool to help patients express what is on their heart and empower them spiritually. Through this, Mercy Ships has found that positive, uplifting environments affects a patients’ health. This holistic care addresses the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual elements of patients to provide a quick and effective recovery.
