I am happy and grateful to God who has made it possible for me to be considered worthy to work and serve with this wonderful organization and amazing people, My name is Emmanuel Ogba Ndukwe Kalu, and i have just been informed that i am qualified to volunteer with Mercy Ships as a Dining room staff, However, am a bit nervous as for how it will look like to volunteer with Mercy Ships, because it is my first time to volunteer outside my geographical entity. Anyone with experience should please share with me. Thank you so much as you accept me to be a member of this great family, Though am so optimistic and exited because it will be a platform through which i can meet people from different parts of the world with different views and experience of life. hope am welcomed?

    Hi Emmanuel,

    Congratulations on being pre-qualified for Dining Room Staff and joining our Talent Pool of candidates waiting for an opportunity to volunteer. I'm sure that you'll find great information here regarding volunteering abroad. A great way to begin learning about this is to read our country specific guidebooks, found here! Hopefully, some of your questions will be answered!

    Congratulations brother, there's nothing to worry about serving with AfricaMercy. I am sure you will have a lot of experience staying onboard the ship and meeting other crew members from all around the world. I will be there soon too but not sure of the date yet as I am in the talent pool. Have you got date yet?

    Congratulations Emmanuel,

    A few years ago, I served on the Dining Room Staff and it was a great experience! No stress, you will be trained onboard, after your arrival and if you have questions, your teammates will be close by to help you out.

    Your comment about volunteering outside of your geographical entity, you will be among others that are doing the same; as there are usually about 35 different countries represented onboard, at any given time. It is truly an international community.

    Hope you have a great experience!
