Children from Malawi return with Gift of Life


Three of the four children, who had successfully underwent heart surgery for congenital heart disorder under the Rotary Club Chandigarh's Heartline Project, flew back to their home yesterday. 
Rtn. Hassan Mejie and PP Kewal Seth gave them a warm send off with a quick sight-seeing of the city and lunch at Rtn. Baldev Aggarwal's restaurant Sip'n'Dine yesterday. 
Earlier on 8th September, having known about the visit of Malawi children for heart surgery, the First Secretary from Malawi High Commission in India reached Fortis Hospital to meet with the three children and their parents. She expressed deep gratitude to Rotary for saving the lives of these children. 
Patience Nkomo (6), Hastings Maloya (6) and Prisca Patrick (14) were very happy having had the precious Gift of Life, but were sad at the time of leaving our  beautiful country. 
Our special thanks to Dr. T.S. Mahant, Director Cardiology, Fortis Hospital Mohali, who conducted the surgeries. And of course, our very own Ann Babbi Harbhajan Singh, who took care of the entire family right from their arrival till they returned back to their homes. .
