Formerly conjoined twins Nima and Dawa have been given a hero’s welcome home in Bhutan after being separated in life changing surgery in Melbourne.
Their father, Sonam Tsherand, cried tears of joy as he held his daughters for the first time since their separation.
Five months after the sisters – born joined at the chest and sharing a liver— flew to Melbourne for separation surgery they landed back home in the Himalayan kingdom yesterday with their mum, Bhumchu Zangmo.
The twins were successfully separated in November in a six-hour operation at the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
