The Africa Mercy Departs Guinea
The 2018-19 field service in Guinea has come to an end! The Africa Mercy has now left Conakry, Guinea, for the Canary Islands, where the ship will undergo annual maintenance before setting sail for Senegal, our next port of service.
This field service has been an outstanding success, with partners from all over the world joining together to bring hope and healing to the nation of Guinea.
Thanks to partners like you, 20,053 people were screened. 2,442 life-transforming surgeries were provided. 41,499 dental procedures were given, and 1,254 local medical professionals trained in our capacity building program.
Thanks to the support of partners like you, we were able to partner with medical professionals in Guinea to provide safe, free surgery and healthcare training to the people of Guinea.
Thank you for helping leave a lasting impact! Stay tuned as we prepare for our 2019-20 field service in Senegal.
