Sixty-year-old Fatou says her parents raised her to be patient. This trait has been critical in her painstakingly slow journey to healing. After two unsuccessful surgeries as a child and countless hospital visits since then, she found out about Mercy Ships and was selected for surgery. There was hope. But just as she was about to receive it, the pandemic hit, and the #AfricaMercy had to leave Senegal. Her surgery was delayed. After waiting two years for the ship to return, Fatou’s patience is paying off. She is receiving her life-changing surgery on board! #GlobalHealth #GlobalSurgery #MercyShips
