A North West Gynaecologist is leaving for Uganda to assist with a charity surgical camp to repair birth injuries.
The Birth Aid website details that ‘in Uganda living with severe childbirth injuries is very debilitating: most women live without running water and electricity and the loss of control of bodily functions can lead to rejection and social isolation. An operation can transform the lives of these women and enable them to return to a normal life in their community.’
Birth Aid is a small charity run by a group of surgeons from the St Mary’s Hospital, Manchester, who visit Uganda in their own time and at their own cost.
