Thanks for posting this guys.

Having been in these parts of West Africa you see the effects of no medical services. The very services we take for granted in our advanced societies..
BUT as laymen we are all individuality helpless to "help" with what seems to be just the hopeless cases especially with young kids in countries like Benin, Cameroons etc ..

Mercyships is a US based charity and quietly shows the other side of the USA.

All too often we are bombarded by the sinister side of the negative.
Here is a US based organization that shows the positive side of the USA.
Caring & Compassion .
No other country does anything like it as an NGO with exception of Doctors Without Borders.

A piece of good news to read in these troubled times , & many thanks for sharing the story.
Above all a high 5 to your daughter in law!
Cheers Dennis

What a waste. A simple abortion would have solved this. Africa is so overpopulated that they are spilling into Europe by the millions.
If abortion is too much, just go with less infant care. The world certainly doesn't need more humans to cause global warming.
