Motolase Mtonga

This is Motolase Mtonga a surgeon at the UTH hospital in Lusaka, Zambia. Motolase carries out surgery on children in incredibly challenging conditions. She told Kids Operating Room: "Working with surgical instruments that are faulty is the most challenging part of my work.

I have one wish. I wish that I could have what i need to get my job done. If we had the correct instruments it would make the world of difference. I want to focus on my patient, not on what isn't working in my instrument set."

 This is why Kids Operating Room exists - to help surgeons like Motolase. 

"I have one wish. I wish that I could have what I need to get my job done. If we had the correct instruments it would make the world of difference."

Soon, we will be installing three new operating theatres for children at Motolase's hospital, complete with all the equipment Motolase and her team need to change the outcomes for children in Zambia.

Safe surgery is important for every child – everywhere.
