It is promising to be in excellent Congress.

Teaching and training of paediatric surgeons is one of the key missions of WOFAPS. There has been a number of exciting developments in addition to the scholarships provided by WOFAPS to young paediatric surgeons. Please remember to check the website and join as a member.

We hope that you will enjoy the scientific content of the meeting, meet old friends, make new friends and contribute to the knowledge transfer at the congress. Our ultimate goal of improving paediatric surgical care to children globally can only be achieved by contributions from everyone of our paediatric surgery community members.

Kind regards,
