Training Local Doctors

Part of the mission of Mercy Ships is to train local doctors to continue doing God’s work even after our ships must sail on to new ports. In Togo, over 30,000 people suffer from blindness due to severe cataracts. Dr. Abram Wodome, a local Togolese eye surgeon, has trained with Mercy Ships in the past and is now passing that knowledge on to other local doctors in order to restore sight to their fellow countrymen.
