There have now been over 120 visits to operate on children in desperate need of surgery which is not readily available to them. Some of the surgery is "routine" by Western standards but results in a huge improvement in the quality of life experienced by these children.
However, many of the operations are complex and specialised and without our help these children currently have very little prospect of improvement or, sometimes, survival.
Our surgical teams also gain valuable experience as they are exposed to a large number of paediatric conditions many of which nowadays present rarely in Western hospitals.
