My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Mercy Ships Operations, Lindale, TX, USA
I had known about Mercy Ships for many years but first had an opportunity to serve aboard AFRICA MERCY for three weeks in 2012. Since I am an engineer I worked in the engine room. I was awed by the experience of so many volunteers from all walks of life and over 30 counties applying their skills to make a first rate hospital accessible to so many people who otherwise would have no where to turn. It was a moving experience especially as one of the crew members I got to know had himself been treated by Mercy Ships to remove a huge life threatening growth on his face. To see him today, handsome, happy, and most importantly, paying it forward, is just one reason Mercy Ships my favorite charity.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
My experience was limited and I cannot think of anything that could be improved upon. I found the organization to be very thorough, professional, and at the same time very caring of my needs as well as the people they serve.
