Introducing me!

Hello Everyone,

My names are Stella Nkoli UWECHIA. I'll be serving as a volunteer in december. I live in Long Island New York where I work parttime as a Dental Hygienist. This will be my first ever Mercyships experience and I'm very excited but also apprehensive. The last volunteer mission work I went for in Nigeria left me a bit disappointed on how little dental care we were able to provide due to much redtapes and unforeseen logistics. I know MercyShips is a bigger organization so I'm staying positive and upbeat.

Blessings everyone.

Any fellow Dental Hgyienist here?? Please give me a shout out!

    Hi Stella,

    My name is Dan, and I'm an anaesthetist. I'm hoping to join Mercy Ships in Camaroon in April 2018. Like you this will be my first trip, and I'm also a little apprehensive. Dental hygenists are great (as evidenced by my excellent teeth ;-)). I'm looking to speak with anaesthetists who've worked or are currently working on the ship. I hope you enjoy your trip. Dan.
