She has been active in the international community for the promotion of women’s health for many years. Her first mission was to Chad where she performed numerous surgeries and gave medical care to hundreds of African women and children. She went to Haiti in 2010 after the earthquake and worked tirelessly in make-shift hospitals doing surgeries, delivering babies and providing emergency medical care for hundreds.

In March of 2011 she went back to Haiti for another medical mission, while there she visited the ‘Amputee Soccer Team’ that she had adopted the first time she was in Haiti. The soccer team is made of of young men who lost limbs during the earthquake.

Dr. Dhanda is extremely devoted to her mission and gives her all to help those who are in need. Her next mission will be to Nepal in 2012. She is truly an angel of mercy who spreads love and caring wherever she goes.”
