What if your child needed surgery and there was no one to help?
Sub-Saharan Africa's population is roughly 50% children. Yet there are very few pediatric surgeons and some countries have none at all. One of our goals for joining the excellent surgical team at Tenwek has been to expand the hospital's services to children. The other is to pass along key surgical knowledge and skills to the surgical residents - enabling them to take care of the kids where they later serve with excellence.
We also hope to continue to contribute to the BethanyKids pediatric surgery fellowship at Kijabe Hospital. There is a massive opportunity to impact the health and lives of children all over Africa.
