After arriving at our hospital, our team was introduced to some of the surgeons and nurses with whom we will be working closely at EsSalud Hospital. They were introduced by Dr. Esly Vicente Anderson Motta, a pediatrician and medical director of the hospital (pictured left). He’s also been our main liaison and has been instrumental in preparing for our team’s arrival at this new site. Sitting next to him is Amy Laden, Interplast’s director of international services, who flew out to Pucallpa ahead of time to help with the preparations. Special kudos need to be given to Amy as she was able to make this inaugural team trip a reality with only two weeks notice, as our original intended Peruvian site was cancelled due to a dengue fever epidemic.
