President of Operation Blessing Boards USNS Comfort

The Military Sealift Command hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) hosted the president of the non-governmental organization (NGO) Operation Blessing International (OBI) along with local church officials for a subject matter expert exchange (SMEE) on June 24 in Acajutla, El Salvador, during the humanitarian-civil assistance mission Continuing Promise 2015 (CP-15).

A non-profit, humanitarian organization, OBI is dedicated to alleviating human suffering in the United States and around the world.

OBI contributed greatly at the CP-15 medical sites assisting with medical care, and also contributed to the mission by donating veterinary de-worming medications and organizing two community relations events at local schools.

Continuing Promise is a U.S. Southern Command-sponsored and U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. 4th Fleet-conducted deployment to conduct civil-military operations including humanitarian-civil assistance, SMEEs, medical, dental, veterinary and engineering support, and disaster response to partner nations, and to show U.S. support and commitment to Central America, South America and the Caribbean.
