Greetings from the Africa Mercy as we finish up our season in the shipyard in Gran Canaria - completing various projects including: replacing the flooring in the hospital on the ward side, converting the recovery room into a ward, creating a recovery room nearer to the operating rooms, refrigeration and galley projects and many others on the long list. I worked on and completed the Guinea final project reports, summary reports, statistics, etc. and then took a short break. I continue to support our large team in Congo already – those with the Advance Team and Off Ship Projects.
I want to take this opportunity and share a bit more about Congo as we move into a new country and new region for Mercy Ships. Back in 2012, I accompanied our managing director to Cotonou, Benin to meet with the president of the Republic of Congo as he was there for other meetings. It has been a long process, but so thankful for this open door and opportunity for us – exciting to be a part of it.
