Your company and Mercy Ships

«Au nom du peuple libérien, je souhaite remercier tous les volontaires sur le navire qui viennent de plusieurs nations dans le monde pour le sacrifice qu’ils ont fait et pour le réconfort qu’ils ont donné à tant de Libériens. Leur travail va au-delà de la compassion et du soin des malades. Cela démontre que le monde est un village global sans limites raciales et sociales. Les Libériens en sont très reconnaissants.»
