Patsy Mertz Headshot Founder Image

Patsy Mertz, The Founder Of The Ivory Coast Mothers And Children Organization And The Patricia Nau Clinic In Braffoueby, Is Truly An Amazing Woman Over 50! Patsy Gave Up A Glamorous Job In The States To Join The Peace Corps—At 55! And Then, Forever Changed And Inspired By The Experience, She Worked Tirelessly To Build A Medical Clinic In The Small, Rural Village That Is So Burdened With Extreme Poverty And A Lack Of Adequate Health Care.

Although I Spoke With Patsy On FaceTime Several Months Ago, I Believe That This Is The Perfect Time To Post Our Interview—The Week Before Thanksgiving. I, For One, Am Truly Grateful To Patsy And Other Brave Women Like Her Who Have Taken Risks In Their Own Lives To Better The Lives Of Less Fortunate Women And Children Across The Globe. I Hope You Will Be As Inspired As I Am By Patsy’s Story And Her Work.
