June 2009 - Video Report

The following link is to a 6 minute video from the Mercy Ships Team.

In our latest webisode, our host, Dr. Andy Rosson, continues to explore the unique world of Mercy Ships. This month, he reports on the recent honors bestowed on Mercy Ships; a training collaboration between Mercy Ships and ALCON to train Ophthalmologists in Benin. He ends by explaining to us what it takes to recruit staff for the Africa Mercy.

This picture is of Dr. Wendy Hofman and Dr. Glenn Strauss. Wendy is an eye surgeon and is going to Gabon with Samaritan's Purse to do eye surgery for 2 years. Dr. Glenn taught her a new technique to remove cataracts here in Africa. Wendy and her husband, Eric, became friends with us while they were here for 3 months prior to going to Gabon on the Western Coast of Africa. We wish them God's blessings for their work there in Gabon!

Please let me know if you have any trouble accessing the video, as we cannot access it from this link onboard. We are now able to watch these videos, but we access it locally here on the ship!
