60 Minutes - Africa Mercy: Hospital of Hope


Why Congo?

Southeast has partnered with Mercy Ships for several years, sending teams to serve alongside the Africa Mercy when the ship has been docked in various ports along the coast of West Africa. Mercy Ships follows the 2,000-year-old model of Jesus to provide hope and healing to the world’s forgotten poor, and Southeast loves to help in any way possible!
