Operation Walk: Nicaragua
In October 2012 a medical team of surgeons, nurses, physiotherapists and support stuff traveled from Winnipeg to Managua, Nicaragua to perform knee replacements for those who normally could not afford surgeries. Operation Walk sends teams around the world on orthopedic aid missions, the Winnipeg teams from Concordia and Seven Oaks raised $180,000. Free Press photojournalist Phil Hossack documented the trip.
