This week, the Club was addressed by Catherine Coleman, a member of the Llanfairfechan and Penmaenmawr Inner Wheel Club who gave an illustrated talk entitled "Mercy Ships".
She explained that Mercy Ships is a global charity which has operated a growing fleet of hospital ships in developing nations since 1978.
These ships bring hope to some of the worlds poorest and disadvantaged people. Medical professionals and many other volunteers give their time and transform the lives of men, women and children through specialised surgery including cataract and tumour removal, cleft lip and pallet repair and orthopaedic operations.
Their first ship, The Anastasis, was converted from an old Italian cruise liner and has 47 beds and three operating theatres. This ship was followed by the Caribbean Mercy and the latest, the Africa Mercy is being fitted out and will be completed this year.
The charity also carries out many missions on land giving primary care, rehabilitation, nutritional advice, provision of clean water and many other activities. This year, Rotary has chosen Mercy Ships as one of its preferred charities.
A vote of thanks was given to Catherine by Rtn Rev Garth Rogers.
