Dr Fiona Reid gave a fascinating talk about the surgical camps she runs twice per year in Uganda treating women with severe trauma after giving birth. Her surgery is life changing for these women and she and her staff (from Manchester) also train local staff in surgical techniques and educate midwifes to reduce birth trauma in the first place.
Fiona sent a note after the evening thanking the HTC congregation for their generosity.
Thank you so much for inviting me to present the work of our small charity to your church. It was a very enjoyable evening. Your members were all incredibly generous
If any of your congregation wish to follow the progress of the surgical camps, Birth Aid has a feed on Facebook and Twitter during the camps in February and June / July.
Thank you once again , hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and the fund raising for your renovations continues with speed God bless you all
Best wishes Fiona
