Wheels Up! From Kampala to Kolkata
It was wheels up for seven children from Uganda today! After 10 months of anxious waiting during the COVID lockdown, multiple visa applications, canceled plane tickets, endless red tape, and medical tests, the children finally took off for India where they will now have their chance for long-awaited heart surgeries. Our group of 7 children, 6 moms, 1 aunt, 1 nurse, and 1 social worker all received their negative COVID test results in the nick of time today while they were waiting in line to check in. Phew!
