My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Mercy Ships Operations, Lindale, TX, USA
I have volunteered with Mercy Ships a total of 7 times now. The first 2 were land-based operations, meeting the group in Honduras and working as a nurse in the Operating Room. The other 5 were on the Africa Mercy, off the coast of Africa. I just returned from the most recent trip 3 days ago and would gladly, greatfully do it again! You get a sense of helping people and camaraderie that you won't get anywhere else!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Resume more land-based operations, especially in Central America. This would make it more accessible for volunteers. The travel to Africa is VERY expensive and VERY time consuming (30+ hours from east coast of US)
Would you volunteer for this group again?
