Gift Will Add Second Mercy Ship


    Mercy Ships has received a donation of $20 million from philanthropists Sue and Bill Gross. The funds are designated toward a new hospital ship, currently in the design phase, to join the current hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, in delivering hope and healing to the underserved poor. In honour of the donation, the hospital onboard the new ship will be named the Sue and Bill Gross Healing Hospital. Mercy Ships, an international medical charity, was founded in 1978 by Don and Deyon Stephens. Bill Gross co-founded Pacific Investment Management (PIMCO).
