We provide the world’s largest charitable floating hospital. We bring free medical care to some of the world’s poorest people. We are almost entirely staffed by volunteers.
We are a team of nurses, doctors, surgeons, and other crew members from all over the world, donating our time to help on board the world’s largest non-governmental floating hospital.
As a floating hospital, we can sail directly to some of the world’s poorest people to deliver life-saving medical care and provide safe, state-of-the-art facilities in which to treat them.
Our supporters are a vital part of the team, paying for essential medical supplies and ship repairs.
Together, we have helped transform the lives of more than 2.42 million people in the poorest countries of the world since 1978.
Robert Lloyd is a marine artist with a world-wide reputation for producing visually stunning and technically accurate paintings for the Marine Industry, Private Individuals and Museum collections. Born in 1969, Robert's interest in the sea started at an early age when living near Liverpool. He used to stand on the banks of the River Mersey and watch the ships coming and going.
After leaving school he studied art and design at college for five years. The final two years required a move to Maidenhead near London and subsequent employment as a graphic designer and illustrator.
During his spare time, Robert would paint for pleasure whenever possible and gradually his reputation spread. Eventually there was so much interest that he made the decision to paint full time. Now, at the relatively young age of 31, Robert has made a name for himself as a marine artist. He has held one-man exhibitions in the UK and his work can be found in the offices of the maritime industry as well as in private collections and museums.
