Stories of Mercy

In less than a month five month old Paulinah experienced a life-change she will never remember but she also soon won’t forget. Her mom took a courageous journey on foot, by canoe and by car to bring her to Mercy Ships, where surgeons removed the largest teratoma they had ever seen on a five month old baby. “When you save a child you don’t just save a life but you save a lifetime.” – Dr. Sherif Emil, pediatric surgeon on Paulinah’s case.
