Mercy Ships Set to Administer Surgical Ser- vices to Nearly 4,000 Complex Cases

Mercy Ships, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, has registered nearly   4,000 complex surgical cases due for operation in August. The registered cases range from general surgery (hernias) and orthopedics (bowed legs), to maxillo-facial (facial tumors, swellings to face, head, mouth, neck, cleft lip and pal- ates, those with missing parts or deformities to face due to infection) as well as eye care services. The largest ever ship to set shore in Sierra Leone will be in-country in Au- gust for period of ten months to deliver zero cost medical services to registered cases. In addition, the team will capacitate the local health workforce with surgical, dentistry and anesthetics training.
