British volunteers face the most emotional two weeks of their lives on board a state-of-the-art hospital ship in Sierra Leone. Imagine a hospital where the staff constantly smile, doctors work tirelessly round the clock, the wards are spotless, and the food is good. This isn't the best private hospital, but a hospital ship, the Anastasis. Docked in Sierra Leone for a couple of months, the ship treats hundreds of people, restoring sight and limbs, and transforming the lives of social outcasts. But it's a tall order - many of the patients have conditions that the surgeons have seen only in textbooks.
