Andre was born in the Philippines and lives in Sydney, Australia. He joined ORH in 2005 as an Anaesthetic Nurse. When he’s not managing the Day Surgery and Day of Surgery Centre at Sydney’s St George Private Hospital he co-ordinates supplies for each annual mission.
He also plays a vital role translating Tagalog into English and vice versa. Andre loves being a part of the ORH ‘family’ and the special bonds of friendship and experience that each team member gains from a mission. He also gains immense satisfaction from the opportunity to aid his fellow countrymen and future generations of Filipinos. “The knowledge that I have in some way assisted to better a child’s life from disfigurement, pain and suffering and contributed to their physical and mental wellbeing going forward keeps me coming back”.
