MEET OUR FIRST PATIENT
 

We'd like to introduce you to some very special people: 2-year-old Saliou and his grandmother Ndiane.

Saliou was the first patient we treated in Senegal when surgeries began last week on the Africa Mercy. He was born with a cleft lip — a condition that can lead to malnutrition and even death in some cases. For two years, Ndiane believed that someday her grandson would be healed — and finally her dream became a reality.

“When I heard about the ship’s arrival, I was relieved. Then I made the decision to stop everything and bring him, because this will impact his future,” Ndiane said. She travelled half a day to get to the Africa Mercy, and Saliou received free, life-changing treatment.

OUR FIRST PATIENT

Saliou's transformation is only the beginning for Mercy Ships in Senegal. In all, Mercy Ships volunteers plan to provide as many as 1,700 free surgeries to people in desperate need of care — all thanks to the generosity of Mercy Ships supporters.

GIVE YOURSELF A HAND!

This summer, countless Mercy Ships supporters joined together to help stock the ship for our field service in Senegal. We're so grateful to everyone who prayed for Mercy Ships, connected with us on social media, made a contribution, or helped spread the word. By coming together, we can begin to change the odds for people in need.

Combined with a pound-for-pound match from an anonymous donor, Mercy Ships donors contributed enough funds to cover:

  • Plastic reconstructive surgery for 547 burn victims like Gamai
  • A portion of the costs for orthopaedics surgery and rehabilitation to help 1,368 children like Maurinho walk tall
  • Tumour removal for 391 people like Edith

Thank you so much for continuing to support Mercy Ships. Our work is only possible through the generosity of our incredible volunteers and supporters. Thank you for believing in our mission to change the odds.
