China South Surgical & Post-Op May 2019
May 5, 2019 - May 23, 2019
The China South Surgery Team will travel to Kunming in the Yunnan province of China this coming May 2019. In previous years, the team has operated on more than 120 patients per year with conditions such as: severe burn contractures, cleft palate and other congenital deformities, etc. Many patients arrive from remote villages and adjacent provinces beyond Kunming where a bus ticket to the city for surgery often means a month’s total family income.
A post-operative team will be following two weeks after the surgery team to help with patient recovery. This holistic approach often results in dramatic improvement in their quality of life. Children with cleft palate and lips are given the surgery they need to go on and have a normal life. If you are a OR or Ward nurse, Pt/OT, Audiologist/HIS or Speech Therapist we would welcome your application to serve with us.
The Surgery Team will serve from May 5 – 16 and the Post-Op Team from May 12 – 23, 2019. There is also a one week option available, pre-approval required for this option (May 5 – 12).
