Dr. Surya and her team pride themselves on being active members of the community. When Dr. Surya was approached to donate to people in need in Uganda, she did not hesitate to send a box of toothpaste along with a cash donation.
The charitable donation was used to save a child’s life who was in need of critical care. She was extremely malnourished due to a medical condition that would have been fatal without medical attention. Because of Dr. Surya, she was able to afford to travel to the hospital, be diagnosed, have her condition treated, and travel back. Upon the departure of their trip to Uganda at the beginning of this month, Alongside International reported that this child would be released from the hospital in a few days and that she is recovering well. She was provided with medication and her mother received education with regard to her condition.
We would love to share with you the photos of this family and remind you that even a small gesture can have a large impact on someone’s life not only during the holiday season, but throughout the year as well!
