Crew Bio: Vivien Welch (NZL) - Wound Care Team / Dressings Team Nurse


“I chose to serve with Mercy Ships after I travelled quite a lot and saw the huge difference in healthcare available around the world. It bothers me that I have so much, and have done nothing to deserve it or earn it and I wanted to be able to do something about it. Mercy Ships is meeting a practical need which I absolutely love”.

“I love the relationship I get to build with each of our patients. Being on the dressings team we spend a lot of time one on one with our patients so I can really get to know them well. I also love seeing the change from when our patients first come to see us. They become excited to come back and get their dressings changed where before they were terrified”.
