Read more about the different surgeries Dr. Andre Hattingh performed in Zambia and Democratic Republic of Congo and examples of medical attention given to unfortunate children.

This is a before and after photo’s of a child that received cleft palate surgery in Zambia by Dr. Andre Hattingh.

Cleft lip and cleft palate (orofacial clefts) are birth defects that occur when a baby’s lip or mouth do not form properly during pregnancy.



This little baby in Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo, was diagnosed with NPH (Normal pressure hydrocephalus) and received hydrocephalus surgery performed by Dr. Andre Hattingh. Thanks to this surgery this little baby was given a future again.

Albino children received medical attention in Kisangani (the capital of Tshopo province in the Democratic Republic of the Congo).

We brought a three year old girl from Katoen, Msholozi, to the Nelspruit Eye Institute. She was seen by Dr. Louw, Ophthalmologist, and was prescribed corrective  glasses. We obtained the corrective glasses for our little girl and she is now on her way to healthy eyes!!

We thank Dr. Louw for his generosity for a free examination and consultation!
