For you folk in Aussie land, there is a good show on SBS tomorrow night (10th December). This is one of the charities I support. Their website is here. They do amazing work.
THE SURGERY SHIP
Tuesday 10th December at 8.30 pm (60 minutes)
Surgery Ship, The. Surgery Ship follows the remarkable story of the Mercy Ship docking in Guinea for 12 months and performing thousands of life changing and life-saving surgeries for conditions that have often long since been eradicated in the Western world. Amongst the volunteers are a dozen Australian doctors and medical staff taking this special journey. These world-class medical teams perform thousands of procedures representing a turning point in the lives of many, but limited time and resources mean just as many are turned away in a life or death decision made on the spot.
