Almost 6 weeks ago Namina was admitted onboard the Africa Mercy.
I was able to go with her for her admission and see a good portion of the 4-hour surgery two days later.
I've been to visit Namina multiple times a week, first on the ship, then at the Hope Center.
She is recovering well and at the same time picking up words of Krio and English and becoming quite active and a bit troublesome : ) .
More on Namina very soon.
