Mercy Ships

The World’s largest self-funded hospital ships

Mercy Ships wanted to refresh the look and feel of their regional website. It was important that each of the new regional website adhered to the organization’s visual guidelines as in the past there was little design coherence between the sites. Mercy Ships is completely self-funded and does not rely on government financing to avoid political influence. For these reasons, each website needed to include online donations and payments.

The Solution

Darwin Digital had already been supporting Mercy Ships for years. We really love what they have achieved and the good work they do each day. We especially appreciate the fact that all donations go directly to treating the patients as the crew and medical staff on board are all volunteers.


The solution we provided for the regional websites was to build a Custom Mercy Ships WordPress theme that included the functionality common to all the sites:

  • Common CSS Styles
  • Multi-language support
  • Responsive and mobile friendly
  • Banner sliders, volunteer forms, maps…
  • Crew, Success Stories and Medical Capacities.


For each regional website we developed custom WordPress plugins to add unique features only relevant for that country:

  • CRM integration
  • Local payment systems – Datatrans, Ingenico, Stripe and DonorPerfect
  • Mailing tools – MailChimp and Sendy.
