At the beginning of 2020 I decided to take a little time out from my ‘normal’ life and volunteer my time and writing skills to an incredible humanitarian healthcare initiative, Mercy Ships, that operates in West Africa. My purpose onboard was to capture the stories of patients, volunteers, medical capacity building (MCB) programs and MCB participants.
I boarded the Africa Mercy (in the Port of Dakar, Senegal) on 17 January 2020 expecting to spend months and months with the ship. Unfortunately two short months later COVID-19, and its impact on most of the world, meant that Mercy Ships had to wind down its field service in Senegal. As a result, I returned to South Africa, until the ship is able to resume its field service, and I can rejoin for a season.
In the meantime, I’m back to my ‘normal’ life, still doing what I love: working with an awesome team of creatives, delivering quality communication material and content, to a select group of clients.
