A medical team from the Sri Satya Sai Sanjeevani Hospital in Raipur, India will perform cardiac surgeries for about 40 children.
10 doctors, nurses and cardiac specialists will be at the CWM Hospital from the 8th to the 18th of August to provide surgeries to children with congenital heart disease.
This initiative of the Sai Prema Foundation (Fiji) is to help the poor and the needy children of Fiji in addition to performing free medical camps in rural and remote villages.
Such surgeries cost about $55,000 per patient but will be provided free and many of the diagnosed children have been on the waiting list for quite some time.
The Sai Prema Foundation (Fiji) in partnership with the Ministry of Health and Medical Services is facilitating this visit.
In addition to the free surgeries, the Indian medical team will also train local doctors and nurses.
