Photo, caption below.
U.S. Navy personnel assist an Indonesian patient from a Navy helicopter during his transfer back to University Hospital in Banda Aceh, Indonesia following treatment onboard hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19), on Feb. 11, 2005. Mercy is currently on station off the coast of Banda Aceh, Sumatra, Indonesia, to provide medical assistance and disaster relief in conjunction with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to the people of Indonesia affected by the devastating tsunami on Dec. 26, 2004. Mercy and its crew of medical and support personnel, civilian mariners, Uniformed Public Health Service and the NGO, "Project Hope" and its volunteers are poised to provide medical services immediately as requested by the host-nation.
