Review for Mercy Ships Operations, Lindale, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I went to Guinea to serve with Mercy Ships last year, and I didn't know what to expect. All I had was a yearning to serve and a love of travel. After setting foot on the ship, every wall is proudly displays thank-you gifts from patients that express their gratitude by singing the praises of the organization and its crew. Even after only two months in the pharmacy, I could see why. Every part of the organization is seeped in love for those that are forgotten and hurting, from the staff in the kitchen to those in the clinic to the wards. And my favorite part was seeing former patients and staff from past field services join the crew and travel with the ship, in essence wanting to continue the care that they experienced. I'm so thankful I was able to participate, and I hope to return soon.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand services so more people could be helped. Mercy Ships clearly works, and works well, within its scope of practice, but it would be amazing to see what another ship or more doctors and nurses could do.
