The Hospital Clínico Universitario Virgen de la Arrixaca (HCUVA) in Murcia, Spain, in partnership with the Spanish NGO Cirugía Solidaria, also donated equipment, from beds to lamps to scalpels.

Over the course of two weeks, healthcare professionals carried out more than 600 operations and over 250 ultrasound scans, according Dr. Angela Cepero, a team member and radiologist at HCUVA.

"Ultrasound was essential to the work that we did, whether we were picking up diseases or distinguishing between patients who needed surgical intervention and those who could be treated as outpatients," she said.
