Dr. Andrew Howard, SickKids orthopaedic surgeon, at Black Lion Hospital Ortho clinic. Dr. Howard saw about 35 kids in less than three hours. There were at least 35 kids who still had to be seen when we left.

Punctured eardrum caused by infection? Not anymore!
Dr. Blake Papsin performs ear surgery while Dr. Abebe Melaku (seated), resident Dr. Alene Meshasha and Dr. Jane Lea (SickKids Resident) observe. Note the soccer balls that came with us to be handed out in post-op.
Some PACU carts are set up in the recovery room. All items were donated.
Having a laugh while we wait for the Department of Health auditors to re-check our bags.
