In November 2010, Nicholas Dudnauth (6 years) from Parika, Kenneth Prince (10 months) from Mahaica and Shurish Baijanuth from Industry had to go to Max Hospital for urgent open heart surgery.  Their lives were in danger and their only hope was to have the surgeries done as quickly as possible.

All three patients had very complex heart abnormalities and were very high risk cases.  They recovered well and returned to Guyana in good health.
