Mercy Ships and MediSend International Partner to Deliver Hope and Healing
Date:12/1/2009

The two humanitarian organizations will collaborate in comprehensive training programs, including biomedical repair technologies. Their shared efforts will begin in 2010 to benefit the West African country of Togo.

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 1, 2009 -- With the recent signing of a Memorandum of Understanding, Mercy Ships and MediSend International have formalized a partnership to help develop sustainable infrastructure in hospitals in developing countries. The two Texas-based humanitarian organizations with far-reaching global footprints will collaborate in comprehensive training programs, including biomedical repair technologies. Their shared efforts will begin in 2010 to benefit the West African country of Togo (the Togolese Republic), a sub-Saharan nation long plagued by poverty, disease and political strife.

Mercy Ships has selected MediSend’s innovative Biomedical Repair Training Program™ to augment their work with the world’s largest charity hospital ship, the Africa Mercy. The ship includes six state-of-the-art operating rooms, an intensive care unit and ward bed space for up to 78 patients. Volunteer crew members from more than 30 nations serve onboard. Togolese biomedical technicians trained by MediSend will help to carry on and further the work begun by the Africa Mercy.

Trainees will take classes in MediSend’s modern educational environment including a state-of-the-art training laboratory located in the Elisabeth Dahan Humanitarian Center, MediSend’s headquarters in Dallas, Texas. The MediSend Biomedical Training Program™ and the well-equipped MediSend Biomedical Repair Training Laboratory were initially funded by ExxonMobil to support the mission of improving health care conditions in developing countries. Going forward, MediSend will train and equip biomedical repair technicians for other countries served by the Africa Mercy.
