A group of pediatric health workers from the most prestigious hospitals in the country dedicate their days of Easter holidays to travel to the small village of Thionck Essyl, in southern Senegal, with the aim of operating children with malformations and without resources.
The children, accompanied by their mothers, travel hundreds of kilometers to arrive on time for their appointment.
The health team is working marathon days of 12 hours with the challenge of operating the maximum number of children during the 10 days they are in the town. Despite the precariousness and lack of resources, the doctors carry out dozens of operations.
