After successfully removing her tumour during our last field service, Albertine returned this field service to have a new jaw fashioned for her. We have grown to love her smile and wonderful spirit. Although it is tough to say goodbye to her, we are excited for her to return to her husband and two children physically restored and eager to embrace the future.
"We interviewed the founder and president of Mercy Ships today - the guy who dreamed the whole thing up and has seen it through for 35+ years. What a visionary!" - Mercy Ships videographer Kristi Oloffson

Mercy Ships is a global charity that has operated hospital ships in developing nations since 1978, bringing hope and healing to the forgotten poor by mobilising people and resources worldwide, serving all people without regard for race or religion.
We have transformed the lives of more than 2.48 million people in the least developed countries for over 35 years. Australian surgeons, nurses and other staff volunteer their services and pay for their own expenses so we can treat more people.
