The US Navy hospital ship USNS Mercy is returning to the Philippines this month to conduct medical missions in Samar and Mindanao.
“I am delighted the USNS Mercy is returning to the Philippines because it strengthens the many partnerships we have in the Philippines to help those in need,” said US Ambassador Kristie Kenney in a statement.
From late May through mid-June, USNS Mercy will support medical, dental, veterinary, and construction assistance programs ashore and afloat at select locations in Samar and Mindanao, and will be part of community events in Manila.
