THE STORY:

Last year I travelled to Mbale, Uganda with Dr. Eric Richter for an IVU Med Surgical camp, and had the privilege to see IVUMed’s mission of parterning with international surgeons and communities in action. Dr. Richter has become fast friends with our host urologist, Dr. Kirya and that trip focused on general urology and reconstruction of male patients. As we prepared the operating theatre for the surgical camp, I was struck by the commitment and ingenuity of our hosts. New state of the art endoscopic tools that we brought as donations sat beside the urologic tools that Dr. Kirya had in many cases designed himself, employing local metalsmiths to fashion retractors and reliable irrigation. The disease that we treated was quite advanced compared to what we typically see in the States. However, most of the women who are afflicted with the complications of childbirth were located in an even more rural area. we were not able to treat them during my last visit, but I shared my heart for these women with Dr. Kirya. Now one year later, Dr. Kirya, Dr. Richter and myself have worked to organize another surgical camp, this time in a more remote location and focused on providing surgery to women with childbirth complications. Your donation will be used to cover flight expenses, $1,000. The remainder of costs associated with the trip will be covered by myself. Any donations in excess of this amount will be donated to IVUMed to allow these surgical missions to continue in the future
