Aboard this floating hospital, thousands of people in West Africa have already seen their lives transformed. Mercy Ships offers free surgeries there.

Aminata was born with a split lip (cleft lip). She was ashamed of her face and had difficulty eating properly. As a result, the little girl preferred to eat alone, away from the eyes of the rest of her family.
