DECEMBER 2009, GUWAHATI, INDIA


We screened over 600 patients. There were two teams for 2 lots of 5 days operating.  In total we operated on 520 patients on 10 operating tables over 10 days.  Personally I did 20 cases, 5 under local anaesthetic in young adults over 15 years of age.  The highlight for me was catching up with Kiran, my dancing girl from the Blue Peter show whose lip I did in May.  I was able to repair her palate this time.  She came to give a goodbye card to myself and to my friend Dr Phil McDonald who was the anesthetist who looked after her when I was operating.  We both were very moved when her father held our hands and said;

"Thank you, you have changed my daughter's life forever"  


That is why we go to help....(Per Hall)
