Shared experiences — like a life-changing surgery — can often lead to fast, lasting friendships. This is true for the Mercy Ships patients who stay at the Hospital Out-Patient Extension (HOPE) Center, waiting for their surgeries and then recovering together. They often form a tight and loving community, together with the volunteers who work with them. This is what's happening now in #Senegal, as surgeries on board the #AfricaMercy continue to transform lives. As one volunteer puts it, "The HOPE Center is just a big family." #GlobalHealth #GlobalSurgery #MercyShips
