Five Little Heart Patients Travel from Uganda to India

Yesterday, five little Uganda heart patients boarded a plane and traveled to India to prepare for life-saving cardiac surgeries that are unavailable to them in their home country. Their parents have spent the past few months gathering medical reports, passports, visas, and taking COVID tests. We hope you’ll follow along with us for the next few weeks as we get to know these heart warriors and their stories.

The First Few Days in Kolkata

They made it! Our intrepid group of travelers from Uganda — 7 children, 6  moms, 1 aunt, 1 nurse, and 1 social worker — arrived safely in Kolkata and got settled into their apartments, which are thankfully all on the same floor and share some common areas for the children to play and for the moms to chat.

Uganda Pediatric Surgery Mission: Final Day

Usually, the final day of a medical mission is a bit slower, as the team winds down a week that is often physically exhausting. That was not the case today in Uganda. The doctors and nurses were determined to help as many children as possible receive surgery, which brought the total number of operations completed this week to 187.  Last month, we thought Dr. Situma was dreaming big at 100 surgeries, but clearly, with such an enormous need for hurting children, that dream had to grow even higher.

Many of them have been waiting years for their operations, enduring daily pain that can quickly be corrected with proper medical care.  Today I would like to share the back story on how this exciting new mission project came to be.

Late last year, a baby girl was found abandoned and extremely malnourished in central Uganda.  She suffered from a severe protein malnutrition that caused her face and body to swell and look puffy. Soon after, Lily came to live at the Tender Hearts Baby Home and is now being cared for in LWB’s Mukono Baby Room. Despite her hard beginnings, Lily has adjusted […]

Learning About Uganda Together

As I imagine is the case with many of you who support Love Without Boundaries, I first became aware of LWB when we adopted my youngest daughter from China. They helped to fund her heart surgery while she was a baby in China, and once we brought her home, they provided us with priceless pictures of her.
