Paediatric Surgery in Uganda

NOMBRE DEL PROYECTO: Paediatric Surgery in Uganda

PAÍS/CIUDAD: Uganda /

DURACIÓN: 2013

A medical team composed by several specialists is sent to perform 40 to 60 surgical operations on children without resources. The project also intends to teach the medical and nursing staff new surgical and anesthetic techniques, as well as providing new technical resources to the hospital where surgical operations are performed.

This project, conducted in collaboration with the NGO “For Africa”, benefits not only to children who have suffered a surgical intervention, but also their typical households, allowing parents – especially mothers – to reintegrate the workplace. One must keep in mind that children's diseases often lead to further impoverishment of the families that support them, because many of their resources have to be devoted to cope with the illness.
