volunteering for Liberia

I will be making my 4th trip to Mercyships in February. I would like to volunteer for Liberia next year. I am basically available almost any time except over the thanksgiving holiday week. I usually work in general surgery or ophthalmic surgery when I am there. Thank you for your consideration

    Hi Tom,

    Our staffing surveys went out over the weekend. You should have received one. Please complete the survey with your dates of availability for the Liberia Field Service. If you haven't received it yet, please check your spam folder. If it isn't there, please let me know right away. Thank you for your upcoming service in Senegal!

    Hello! I was accepted in March2019 for the hostess position and put in the talent pool. I would REALLY like to serve in this up coming trip to Liberia. How likely is it that I will be scheduled?

    Thank you for your interest in serving with Mercy Ships! I honestly don't know the answer to your question, but I have asked one of our General Staffing team members to let you know. I hope it will work out for you.

    @brookbank Thank you so much for your continued interest in serving. My name is Tracey Bartula and I am the General Staffing Manager. We have changed the name of the role from Hostess to Hospitality Staff, just fyi :) Currently, our next availability for the Hospitality Staff role is 20 September 2020. I'll reach out to you through personal email with more information on serving in 2020-2021. Thank you again for reaching out and I look forward to working with you!

    Hi there, I wondered if there was a country specific guide book for Liberia please?

    I did a search and could only find one on Senegal. I am keen to find out a bit more about Liberia and information on the internet is quite limited. I am hoping to serve in 2021 in Liberia, God willing

    Thanks so much:-)

    Hi Annie,

    Thank you for your interest in serving with Mercy Ships!

    There will be a country specific guidebook for Liberia soon. There is quite a bit of research that goes into creating our guidebooks for each individual nation where we serve, and they are usually completed closer to the start of the actual field service. If you continue to check in regularly, it will be posted eventually.

    If you have any specific questions regarding Liberia in the meantime, please post them here, and we will do our best to provide you with the information we have.

    I hope it will work out for you to serve with us in Liberia!
