Review for Mercy Ships Operations, Lindale, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
