The Little Wings Foundation typically runs two missions, lasting five days each, in a year. During the mission, The Little Wings Foundation holds a day clinic where children requiring medical intervention are referred. In October, 2012 at a mission in Gaza the medical team assessed 110 children. About 30 needed surgeries and 15 were operated during the mission.
The surgeries to be undertaken are usually dependant upon our medical supplies and the needs of the children. In this mission there were five full days of surgery beginning from 8am and ending at 6pm with some surgeries taking as long as five hours.
The remaining 15 children were put on a waiting list to be either brought to Dubai or referred to other surgeons depending on their condition.
