Hi Cees

Good to see that Africa Mercy is now in Rotterdam on her way to Africa. She was for a large number of years on the River Tyne (North East England) undergoing conversion into a Hospital Ship from the former ferry Dronning Ingrid.

The world's largest non-governmental hospital ship, with six operating theatres, a 78-bed patient ward and accommodation for more than 450 volunteer crew members. See
