The Christian charity Mercy Ships won the award for Best Human Interest Documentary.
Mercy Ships’ website describes the work they do this way: “Many people in Africa have little or no access to healthcare. There are only 2.5 physicians per 10,000 people in Africa, compared to 25 physicians per 10,000 in the U.S. So the Africa Mercy brings volunteer medical teams and sterile operating rooms directly to people who would otherwise go without care.
It’s the world’s largest civilian hospital ship providing state-of-the-art care to those in desperate need—free of charge.”
The documentary, titled The Surgery Ship, chronicles how patients are helped aboard the hospital ships. It is comprised of eight episodes.
