The Directors and Staff of the Foundation were very saddened to learn of the untimely death of Orthopaedic Surgeon Mr Ian Torode.

Ian was a very special friend and surgeon to many of our children.  His endless patience and understanding  towards the  children, who were often fearful on arrival, ensured that they achieved the best possible outcome from his surgical care.

So many children from resource poor countries are now able to walk thanks to Ian’s surgical skills and his determination to help them.

His generosity and kindness in providing this humanitarian service to our children will always be remembered.

We send our deepest condolences to his family and his many colleagues.  He will be sadly missed.

Margaret Smith OAM
Chief Executive Officer
