The Mercy Ship

Nine medics from Northern Ireland put the comfort of their homes and day jobs on hold and travel to Africa for the experience of a lifetime. 

They have volunteered to help on The Africa Mercy, the world's biggest floating hospital, as it visits the desperately poor island of Madagascar. 

They are challenged by extreme medical conditions of the sort that are rarely, if ever, seen in Europe.
