An interview with orthopedic surgeon Johannes Bernbeck is presented. He says that he was involved with Children of the Nations through his church, then he coordinated with Mercy Ships because he wanted to be involved in a group that was well entrenched in global charity. He cites the language barriers he encountered during his work. He also tackles the things they take for granted in their lush medical system, the kind of equipment at their disposal, and the dependable power supply of the ship.
