Associated Press: Amid poverty, U.S. surgeons saving lives in Uganda
“…[A neurological] operation was one of many complex, life-saving surgeries the [American] team [of doctors] performed for a week on Ugandan patients who otherwise had little hope of survival. The operations, which would cost up to $20,000 here, are free while a group of American doctors take part in a ‘surgery camp’ during which they also train local doctors…” (Muhumuza, 8/26).
