With a team of 39 people undertaking specific roles, we never have everyone on the ground at the same time.

Kerrie, the last of our screening team left yesterday. Along with Malcolm & Garry they conducted all the pre-surgery testing and reviews with the local doctors that determined the best possible list of candidates for surgery.

So we’d like to say thank you to Kerrie, Malcolm and Garry for your hard work and hope that you are back into the swing of things back home in Australia.

The screening team ready to depart from Tonga

Clement, Maree and Steph all left on Saturday morning. Ian, David & Sally depart tonight. Guys again thanks for your hard work over the past week – we hope you have enjoyed your time in Tonga.

We’d also like to welcome Nick, Andrew, Jeff and Bruce who have flown in over the past 24 hours for the second week of the project!
