The Leicester Gondar Partnership

Leicester Gondar orthopaedic project

As we are all only too well aware, British pointing could not continue without the support of our medical teams.

Next year, more than ever, this will become apparent, as new regulations will now raise the standards of our medical cover to new levels, along with the associated costs.

It is only right, therefore, that we do our best to give a little back to our hard working doctors when we can.

Richard Power has been a Midlands Area doctor for many years, and has asked that we help him to publicise the work that his group are doing to improve orthopaedic care in Gondar, in the north of Ethiopia.

Richard begins to explain the project at about 2m 10s in the video and explains at the end how you can donate towards the charity in various ways. Please give generously if you can.
