Transforming Lives in PNG
July 24 - August 6, 2013
A team of 50 volunteers has been assembled, all donating their time to assist the people of Papua New Guinea. The team will share their expertise and clinical experience to help local medical staff improve the level of healthcare delivered in their country.
During this time, they will assist adults and children of Papua New Guinea to receive surgery that will totally transform the lives of the patient and their family.
Since the beginning of Open Heart International in 1986, over 90 similar adventures have taken place all over the world and more than 2300 patients have received surgery. Without Open Heart International many of these patients would not have survived, and at best most would not be able to lead the active and productive lives that are today.
