With the Day of the Seafarer right around the corner, it is important to remember that the vessels we rely so heavily on are all run by a team of dedicated individuals. Mercy ships, an international development organization operating state-of-the-art hospital ships run by skilled volunteers to deliver free world-class medical services are in the mix. Several of the volunteers who serve aboard the Africa Mercy are seafarers, and among them earlier this year was Canadian Gregory Abakhan. After a career switch in 2016, Gregory finds himself on board the world’s largest civilian hospital ship as a Lead Deckhand un Sub-Saharan Africa to serve some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the world. You can read Gregory’s full story here.
