It didn’t take long for volunteer Tammy Dunne (Australia), Communications
Admin, to form a special bond with little Gifty during a previous Mercy Ships field service. This friendship has spanned time and distance – and in the eyes of Gifty and her mother Joyce, Tammy sees a reflection of hope.
“Parents will do anything to get the help their children need. I watch them relax when they see the ship for the first time and know it is real. Then in each step of the journey, they relax a little more as their hope has been realized. For my friends, Joyce and Gifty, they just can’t wait to get back onboard [for follow up surgery]!”
