House of Hope Uganda inc was responsible for the travel arrangements and the surgery opportunities for Alistera.

Alistera, her father and Dr Osire flew to the Congo Brazzaville to board the Mercy ship on September 3 2013.

To date Alistera has undergone 2 operations, one to repair her eye and mouth and the second operation to begin the rebuilding of her ear. We are expecting her to need another two operations and to hopefully return to her village around the end of January 2014. Alistera is recovering well and is enjoying being the centre of attention.
