medical services to the people.

August 9 to 16.
The team comprises of a world-class radiation oncologist,
medical imaging doctor, pathologist and enterostomy therapist. They will offer
medical services, including clinical training and assistance in establishing
standard operation procedures in pathology checking.
The team will donate
1000 pieces of colostomy irrigation bags to the Angau Memorial General Hospital
and the PNG Stoma Association. The team is led by Dr Nina Kao, the chief
