Review for Mercy Ships Operations, Lindale, TX, USA
I've worked on the Africa Mercy once before, 5 months is Guinee. There I desided to come back for 3 months to the Republic of Congo. I'm a wardnurse, and worked serveral specialties like VVF (Vesica Vaginal Fistula), orthopedics and plastics. Very diffirent then the work you do at home! All the diffirent nationalities on one ward, lower complexity in patient care, but very good for spending real time with the patients and personal development. A very good experience for me, something that changed my life for ever! During the time with Mercy Ships you get to have time to really think what you want to do next and how you want and can serve God. The most importend thing.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Go more into the conutry, the ships is really a barrier
