Mercy Ships New Zealand
Mercy Ships NZ staff
Sitting close to my heart are the words ‘to whom much is given, much is required’. Making a difference in people’s lives is a key part of my DNA.
The challenge is huge, but the life transforming benefits for people in Africa are momentous and I am excited to be a part of that.
I have the wonderful job of communicating with all of our fabulous donors. The Sunday TV programme featuring Mercy Ships inspired me to get involved – I just loved those Kiwi volunteers!
My role is connecting people who want to help change the world and bring them the opportunity to do so. I have the privilege of meeting so many people with the most amazing humility and passion to help others in need.
I champion NZ volunteers, assist in their application process, provide timely info, and liaise with our Int’l Support Office. Witnessing our volunteers delivering hope & healing on board is priceless.
