Medical Mercy Ships: Missions of Hope & Health

Please join host Frankie Picasso and guest Tim Maloney for another amazing show on The Good Radio Network: Radio that Does a World of Good.

Tim Maloney is the National Director of Mercy Ships Canada, a humanitarian who has worked tirelessly and successfully in the non profit world for over 30 years. With his guiding hand at the helm of Mercy Ships Canada, he is helping to raise the vital funding that allows Mercy Ships to provide healthcare to the poorest of the poor, free of charge.

Mercy Ships is an international faith-based charity using volunteers aboard hospital ships to deliver transformational surgeries and health care to the world’s forgotten poor.

The ships out outfitted to be a world class health facility and they are equipped to handle any kind of surgery and DO!

The African Mercy, arrived on October 25th 2014 in the Republic of Madagascar, where it will be docked for the next eight months on a mission of hope and healing in Toamasina. During this time Mercy Ships plans to provide approximately 1,700 FREE surgeries for adult and child patients onboard, to treat approximately 8,000 at a land-based dental clinic renovated for that purpose, and provide holistic healthcare education to Malagasy health care professionals and community leaders.

Please consider donating to Mercy Ships during this FESTIVE Season. An Anonymous Donor has pledged to MATCH every donation that comes in. Here is the link to their Gift Catalogue. Remember, Mercy Ships helps the forgotten, the World’s poorest of the Poor. Everyone on board the ships, the doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, etc are ALL VOLUNTEERS. In fact, they have to pay their own way during their stint on board. Your donation GOES WHERE IT IS SUPPOSED TO GO, directly to the patients who need them.
