Mercy Ships Announces Sierra Leone Field Service
Date:4/21/2010

Field Service to Sierra Leone Finalized by Mercy Ships

Garden Valley, TX (Vocus) April 20, 2010 -- Mercy Ships has selected Sierra Leone as the site for the 2011 Field Service for the world’s largest charity hospital ship, the Africa Mercy. This will be the fourth time that Mercy Ships has delivered free world-class medical care to the impoverished West African nation. The protocols and Memoranda of Understanding were recently signed. The Sierra Leone government was represented by The Honourable Vice President, Sam-Sumana, and Mercy Ships was represented by Mr. Don Stephens, Founder and President. The agreement provides the necessary collaboration with the Sierra Leone government in regard to the port, security, water and sanitation. It also opens the door for the Mercy Ships Advance Team to do the preliminary work necessary for the upcoming Field Service.

Health care in Sierra Leone is unaffordable and often unavailable. The country ranks 180 out of 182 nations on the 2009 Human Development Index, and the majority of the population lives on less than $2 per day. Infant mortality in Sierra Leone is 159 per 1000 births as compared to the USA at 6.3 per 1000 births. Dental care is another illustration of the conditions within the country, with one dentist for every one million people and 6,000 dentists per million people in the USA

The ten-month 2011 Field Service will once again bring hope and healing to Sierra Leone. The state-of-the-art hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, contains six operating theaters and will provide free medical care. The off-ship Eye Clinic and Dental Clinic will offer additional medical services.
