Proud to be Aussie

Our wide brown land
This morning’s news included a story of Operation Open Heart. It’s a group of 64 doctors and medical professionals who voluntarily travel to countries like PNG (where they are now), Cambodia, Burma, Rwanda, Sudan and all the other places where heart surgeons are rather scarce.
They fix hearts for free, of course, but also train local surgeons in the latest techniques. They take 6 tonnes of equipment with them! Sixty four people, including medical gas technicians, biomedical engineers, anaesthetists, nurses and others.
They do it for several weeks then come back to Oz, ready for next year.
Coupled with our economy and our sporting people, the older I get, the prouder I’m becoming to be an Aussie. Well done, Australia.
