Qiqihaer, China--Susan W. Hayes, Interplast president & CEO
After 24 hours of travel, the Interplast volunteer medical team made it to Qiqihaer, China. This is our first trip to Qiqihaer and we are very excited. More than a decade ago, Interplast made its first surgical trip to China, traveling to Shanghai. In 2005, Interplast returned to China at the invitation of the China Population Welfare Foundation (CPWF). Since that time, Interplast surgeons have performed nearly 500 life-changing surgeries in Ganzhou City and Chongqing, while providing hands-on training to local medical professionals. We look forward to helping the children in Qiqihaer on this trip.
