Surgery Day 1 – Ethiopia!

Day 1 of surgery for the CSI Ethiopia team today. It was a LONG day, but productive! It is amazing to see how people, some who have just met, can problem solve and provide care as though they have worked together for years. The kids and families make it all worth it. Our team is so very grateful.

Despite it being a long day, we’ve got things dialed in now. We have a sweet OR set up, except for the fact that it’s 85 degrees! We get to work with a great CSI and local team.

This little guy was one of twelve patients that were operated on and cared for today by a hard-working group of committed volunteers.

We are off to sleep as fast as we can, preparing for another full day tomorrow……
