Goeiedag almal

Uit respek vir die president se besluit en vir die beskerming van ons pasiënte het ek besluit om al ons OHH chirurgie op ys te sit tot na die stof van die pandemie gaan lê het. Baie van ons personeel werk in hoë risiko omstandighede en ek kan nie ons pasiënte aan die risiko blootstel nie. Weet egter dat ons van niemand van ons huidige en toekomstige pasiënte gaan vergeet nie en dat dit my grootste prioriteit is dat almal die chirurgie ontvang wat hulle toekom. Ons sien mekaar Deo Volente aan die ander kant. Bly tuis en bly veilig.

Onthou... Dis altyd die donkerste reg voor dagbreek!

Liefde en groete,
Dr. Helene Basson (CEO Operation Healing Hands)

Good day everyone

Out of respect for the president's decision and for the protection of our patients, I decided to put all our OHH surgery on ice until after the dust of the pandemic had settled. Many of our staff work in high-risk situations and I simply cannot expose our patients to the risk. However, know that we are not going to forget any of our current or future patients and that it is my highest priority to make sure that everyone receives the surgery they deserve. God-willing, we will see each other on the other side. Stay home and stay safe.

Remember ... It's always the darkest right before dawn!

Love and Greetings,
Dr Helene Basson (CEO Operation Healing Hands)
