Akuavi can face life again

Akuavi suffered for 30 years with a disfiguring tumor that threatened to take over her face and her life.
Thanks to the Africa Mercy and the tireless dedication of our volunteer doctors and nurses, Akuavi is free to live again. She no longer hides away in shame.
Free of her physical and emotional burden, Akuavi celebrates the beginning of her new life, thanks to her surgery onboard the Mercy Ship!
