When Teneng was first admitted for surgery on the #AfricaMercy, her mother, Fatoumata, described how painfully shy her daughter was: “She doesn't have many friends and likes to stay away from people.” At the Hospital Out-Patient Extension (HOPE) Center, where she is recovering after her surgery, Teneng is making friends — not only with other children, but with Mercy Ships volunteers, too! We love seeing how surgery is restoring more than just Teneng’s smile. #GlobalHealth #GlobalSurgery #MercyShips
