This amazing OR team with their extraordinary professional skills have been delivering smiles to the faces of children and parents non-stop since we arrived in Bangladesh.
At the mid-point of the mission, the energy level remains high while the team continues to function like a well-oiled machine. We depart the hotel at 6:30AM every morning and caravan in three vans to the hospital. A quick review of the daily schedule typically reveals fifteen surgeries are planned with the patients having arrived the night before. From hospital arrival to departure, the days are a minimum of ten hours and frequently longer for the OR teams.
Apart from their extraordinary professional skills, this is a thoroughly dedicated and committed medical team. Its 28 members have a combined total of over 200 international missions.
Rotaplast specializes in transforming smiles and improving the quality of childrens' lives. Meet Fahim and Rafi:
