Can I ask all of you very generous folk to consider donating to the Royal College of Surgeons Christmas Appeal this year? I know many of you donated last year, enabling us to build, equip and staff the first surgical HDU in Eastern Uganda. Since then, mortality rates from laparotomy have dropped 41% which is pretty staggering.
This years appeal looks like an excellent project involving training rural Nepali clinicians to perform paediatric inguinal herniorraphy. Once more it is evidence based and the training model is tried and tested.
The link is below, you can donate even if you’re not a member of the English college.
Cheers and Merry Christmas!
