Lalao had no hope her future could be any different

Your mercy makes a difference

Will you help provide essential surgery for others in desperate need

As the swelling in Lalao’s neck grew, so did her anxiety. Sometimes she awoke during the night choking and gasping for breath. She would carefully hide her neck with a scarf, but still Lalao’s employer sacked her because her ‘appearance offended’. No one could stop the goitre growing.

Please, help Mercy Ships care for people like Lalao. Just a few dollars from you each month will show them that hope is not lost.
