Our journey takes us from Maui to India. The purpose of our trip is to volunteer at the Calcutta Mercy Ministries in Calcutta. The ministry is also celebrating their 50th anniversary.

Mercy Hospital is one of the best hospitals in Calcutta. 80% of their patients are cared for without charge. They also take care of hundreds of cleft palate children free of charge. The hospital was built due to the vision and faith of Mark Buntain who did not live to see the completion of the hospital. His wife Huldah took on the project and her faith helped bring her husband's vision into reality.
