2019 heralds an abundance of projects and new goals. Besides our well consolidated presence in seven African nations, this year the association has in fact decided to invest in the purchase of another (the second one) “flying operating-room”, complete with all the tools and machines that are necessary towards highly complex types of surgery in Jamkhed, in the Indian State of Maharashtra, where GICAM has become a reference point for the local community and the entire region.
The new operating room will enable us to cut down on transportation expenses for tool and machines and to set up a surgical operational base which, if things go as planned, will further enable us to meet the region’s pediatric reconstruction needs.
Our doctors, upon returning from one of the latest missions, have reported having been able to operate a good deal and in complete harmony with local staffs. Unfortunately, 85% of the patients were children with malformations and serious burns in hands and feet.
