Many nations, one mission
One of the enriching points of Mercy Ships is the diversity of people who have collaborated as volunteers over the years. More than 1,200 volunteers from over 60 countries serve with Mercy Ships each year. From surgeons and medical personnel to the captain, cooks, technicians, teachers and others, our crew constitutes a wide range of skills and specialties needed to make a difference in the countries we serve.
People come from all over the world and from many backgrounds and yet we are able to communicate with each other as seafarers. It's very exciting and I enjoy it!
Mercy Ships was the best place for me to share my talents, in a way that suits my personality. We live in a community... we share our talents, our energy and our space as much as we can with each other: the crew, the patients and the surrounding country.
I love teaching at Africa Mercy because I get to be with my students all the time. I get a more complete picture of who they are as people and how I can best teach them.
