2015 the REWA team organized the 4th surgical team camp "Happy Feet". Again surgical specialist from Austria and Switzerland came to operate children with deformed feet in Leh and Kargil. In close collaboration with ISHWAR and ENDOLITE the traveld to Leh in July to treat four children at the S.N.M. Hospital and a few days later they arrived in Kargil to operate four more children, two of them being sisters with severe knee deformities. For this surgery there was a great effort necessary to correct the problem, but everything went well. The driver of REWA Leh took the doctors, their assistant and the orthopeadic technician from ENDOLITE from Leh to Kargil and shuttled them every day from hospital to accomodation and back. The director of Ladakh-Hilfe, Karola Wood, was present during the activities in Kargil and was able to visit the children at the hospital to encourage them.
Both REWA teams in Leh and Kargil are taking care of the operated children now. In Kargil they see the children three times a week for physiotherapy.
We, the team of Ladakh-Hilfe, REWA and the parents with children are so grateful for the great service and help offered to our children. Thank you Dr. Ernst Orthner and Colleges, thank you staff of S.N.M. Hospital Leh and Kargil District Hospital, thank you ENDOLITE and ISHWAR.
