More Children get new gift of life

Fourteen more children received free life-saving heart surgeries at the Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani Children’s Hospital in Suva this week.

Hospital Director, Dr Krupali Tappoo highlighted the collaborative efforts of a leading team of specialists from the USA and around the world, led by Dr Shaun Setty, in providing this essential care to children in Fiji and the Pacific region.

Dr Setty, a Pediatric Cardiac Surgeon, emphasized the complexity of the cases encountered during this surgical mission, noting the hospital’s capability in treating children with intricate heart conditions just two years since its establishment.

Dr. Rebecca Kameny, a Pediatric Cardiac Intensivist from Stanford University California, expressed her delight in being part of the international team at the Hospital.

She emphasised the satisfaction derived from caring for these children and witnessing their post-surgery smiles.

The Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani Children’s Hospital has  so far conducted a total of 274 life-saving heart surgeries and provided over 16,000 children with free echocardiograms.

The surgeries will continue throughout  the weekend, ensuring ongoing critical care for those in need.
