Tanzania Mission, Day 2- 2023
On the second day of our ongoing deployment in Tanzania, our team performed 14 operations on children suffering from congenital heart defects.
Our Little Hearts team is currently in Tanzania on their 42 overall deployment. It is our 7th mission in the country and during previous missions we have saved over 400 children.
During this mission, we aim to treat at least 70 children.
These operations are performed by our 16-member strong international team with the help of local doctors, nurses and other medical staff at Jakaya Kikwete Cardiac Institute, Dar el Salam.
These interventions are free from the point of contact and funded by donations towards our Little Hearts programme in the UK and other parts of the world.
We would also like to thank the core team and other cyclists at the H&KCC who have been one of the most avid supporters of our Little Hearts programme. Three members of the H&KCC team are part of this mission, observing and interacting with families, children and doctors and having a first-hand experience of what it involves in bringing such a complex mission together and delivering the care and commitment these children deserve.
