YWAM Ships Kona

General

Classification: Nonprofit
Type of Organization: Both (MSO/UMO)
Legal Name: YWAM Ships Kona
Established: 2011

Organization Description & Goals:

SERVING THE ISOLATED YWAM Ships Kona exists to serve isolated islands and remote shoreline villages through health and healing services. Using ships to serve is not just a good option for these locations, it is the ONLY option. Islands without airports, and shorelines with no roads or bridge access, are limited to ships able to reach them and provide services. A primary goal is to reach remote Pacifica islands without airports. It can take weeks to sail to remote islands across the vast ocean. The Big Island of Hawaii is ideally situated in the great expanse of the Pacific Ocean to achieve this mission.

Organizational Principles

Purpose & Mission Statement:

YWAM Ships Kona exists to supply critical medical aid and the hope of the gospel to people living on isolated islands and remote locations without airport or road access. Our ships carry qualified medical staff and other volunteers who serve isolated areas through health care access and education.
