Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
We at Waves of Mercy truly believe that we can make an important difference to many peoples lives by applying our talents, skills, and experience in order to assist others less fortunate than we are. When you volunteer to support one of our programs you become a key element for the success of that program. All of our programs are designed as hands on training courses for our local counter parts. As you work together it will be your job to teach as much as you can to your local counter part. The real success of the program will depend on how well you pass along your skills and experience. The people you will work with are not interested in charity, although they will be glade of the extra help. What they really want, and need, is training so that long after you have left they can continue to provide better medical and dental services to there people.
