October – Ghana: Children’s Lifeline / Children’s Hospital Boston / Harvard Medical School
Dr. Francis Fynn-Thompson of the Children’s Hospital of Boston and Harvard Medical School led a pediatric cardiac mission to Ghana in October of 2010. He and Dr. Ravi Thiagavajan were able to operate on 19 children in just 6 days. Unfortunately, they were not able to help everyone they evaluate. Many families journeyed days and miles for the chance to have their children seen by a specialist. We hope to be able to continue this mission as it is clearly evident that further mission work is needed in this part of the world.
