Beaming smiles all round on the faces of the surgeons working at the Hospital Diospi Suyana
They look like a piece of metal with a plastic handle. Not really that impressive. But for abdominal surgeons they are a priceless tool. These surgical devices can cut abdominal loops and put them back together again. For what a surgeon formerly had to do through arduous manual work can now be done within a few seconds thanks to this useful invention.
We say a cordial dankeschön to Aesculap AG – a subsidiary of BBraun Melsungen – for this generous donation in kind, valued at a five-digit sum. For ten years now the BBraun Group supports the Hospital Diospi Suyana. In October 2013 Prof. Ludwig Georg Braun, honorary president of the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and his wife saw the missionary hospital in Peru for themselves. It was a flying visit, but its repercussions can still be felt today. Pure blessing! /KDJ
