A group of Nautique employees traveled earlier this week to Yetebon, Ethiopia, to visit Project Mercy.

Project Mercy Inc. is a U.S.-based not-for-profit relief and development agency that promotes education, health care and other holistic community development projects in Ethiopia.

Nautique employees spent time reviewing Project Mercy’s extensive support for the Ethiopian people and brainstormed how Nautique can continue to help Project Mercy with current and new projects.

This is the sixth service trip Nautique employees have taken outside central Florida in the last four years.

“It was amazing to see firsthand the incredible work Project Mercy is doing to help the people of Ethiopia,” Nautique president/CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement. “I encourage everyone to learn more about this incredible organization at Project Mercy.”
