While in Cameroon, the Africa Partnership Station 2012 participants, including Project HOPE volunteers Dr. Keith Williams, Dr. Barry Finette and myself, were visited by both the U.S. Ambassador to Cameroon, Robert P. Jackson and the United States Secretary of the Navy the Honorable Ray Mabus.
The distinguished visitors came aboard the HSV 2 Swift to acknowledge the importance of the mission to the maritime security of the area. They also affirmed the contribution of the medical team, who were providing collaborative exchanges with their Cameroonian counterparts.
In speaking directly to the Project HOPE volunteers, Secretary Mabus praised our efforts and thanked us for our service. "Project HOPE has been vital to the success of Africa Partnership Station,” he said. “We would not have been able to do the mission without you."
