Vicki Clark gave a fascinating talk about ‘Mercy Ships’ on Monday 18th November, 2019. Mercy Ships provide medical and community care, and free surgeries for the underserved in Africa. The hospital ship, Africa Mercy is staffed by volunteers and Vicki has served on the ship.
Volunteers from over 49 nations have served onboard the Africa Mercy, which was acquired in 1999 and refurbished specifically for the Mercy Ships mission. It is the largest non-governmental hospital ship in the world, effectively more than doubling the annual medical capacity of her predecessors.
