It really is the best day ever when we get to send patients, like Malick, home fully healed. When Malick first arrived at the Africa Mercy, he walked up the gangway on a pair of bowed legs. After orthopedic surgery and several months of rehabilitation, he came down that same gangway. But this time—on straight legs!
On the day he was discharged from the Africa Mercy, Malick was given his very own farewell dance party. After months of hard work, the rehab team and Malick's mother gathered around the six-year-old to celebrate his healing. A success for all!
