Don Stephens Visits the Africa Mercy
The Africa Mercy had a special visitor this past week, our President and Founder, Don Stephens! Don, who founded Mercy Ships back in 1978, greeted crew, enjoyed time on the wards and even decorated some casts up on deck seven.
“Coming back to the ship feeds my inner being. Seeing the transformation in these patients is truly wonderful and it gets to me every time. But I also love coming to see the crew! It’s so encouraging to see 30 different nationalities come together for one common purpose.”
