PENANG: A team of doctors and nurses from the US-based Children’s HeartLink programme have sacrificed their vacation for a charity mission to offer free corrective heart surgeries to 10 needy children at Penang Adventist Hospital (PAH). 

Team leader and paediatric cardiac surgeon Prof Dr Daniel Michael Cohen, who works at the University of Florida, said it was a rewarding experience to spend 10 days of his three-and-a-half weeks of annual vacation on a charity mission in developing countries.
