Yes, our Open Heart International Team arrived in Myanmar on Sunday 17 Feb 13.

We are delivering our expertise in three major hospitals across Yangon, a capital city in Myanmar, and as at Tuesday evening performed 14 major heart operations.

The Yankin Children’s Hospital is a relatively new hospital transformed. It was formerly The Ministry of Mining Building. Under the direction of Dr. Win Win Kyaw, and with a helping hand from Open Heart International, her team is now including adult cardiac surgery to their list in addition to paediatric.
