Mission of Mercy is an AMAZING organization that serves so many people with such little money resources. They rely upon a wide network of dedicated volunteers to deliver medical care to individuals and families with lower incomes, and they provide this care in an atomosphere of dignity and grace. I have visited their medical site in Frederick City several times and I am always amazed by the number of patients served and the professional manner in which the medical care is delivered. I definately give Mission of Mercy 5 stars!
