Medical mission in Ethiopia


November 22th-30th, we carried out our 5th and last mission of the year. Dr Guillermo Montes, neurosurgeon, set up a team of volunteers including Christel Buldó, Georgina Rabassa (both nurses), Cristina Cantero (anesthesiologist) and Jordi Reynaldo (image diagnosis supervisor).

The medical mission had Addis Abeba and Adama as destinations and took an active role in 14 medical interventions, collaborating with local professionals in a variety of surgeries. The team also carried out training sessions on cranial and spinal surgery, providing local physicians with practical information. During their stay, medical and surgical instruments and equipment were donated to Adama Hospital Medical College (AHMC).
