In May 2022, a team of volunteer doctors, nurses and allied medical staff from Dalhousie University’s Department of Surgery, the QEII Health Sciences Centre and the IWK Health Centre will travel to Kigali, Rwanda, to perform life-saving cardiac surgeries. Working with their Rwandan medical partners, one team will perform adult cardiac surgeries, almost exclusively valve replacements requiring heart-lung bypass; the following week, a pediatric team will perform congenital heart surgeries on children. The Dalhousie team will continue to work with their Rwandan partners to grow that country’s cardiac surgery program.

All donors will receive an electronic tax receipt via email after making a gift on projectDAL.
