Early September this year 2015 the first surgeries were carried out at the long waited service at Hanga Health Center run by the Monks of Hanga Abbey. It was a joy to the patients and to all who are served at the center. The surgery unit has been under construction for about three years and came to completion in May, 2015. It has been establish to serve the large rural area serving more than 12 villages around Hanga Abbey with population of 40,000 people or so. With the surgery service comes the blood transfusion service which is very important to the women in labor and anemic people especially the children. We express our gratitude to all the donors who have contributed to this worthy cause to serve the poor.
Below are pictures of surgeons and nurses in the process of performing surgery; and two women first to have surgery during delivery at the new Surgery Unit.
