A successful outcome for the vocational training team

News from the medical superintendent.at Ngora Freda Carr Hospital.  This shows just how much of an impact the Thames Valley Rotary Vocational Training Team have.   They teach emergency birth Skills in Uganda, the team was established in 2013 with its first visit in 2014 followed by visits each year since then.

"Warm greetings from Ngora Freda Carr Hospital. On behalf of the staff you & your colleagues trained, I say thank you.

On the 6th Nov 2018, at about 5.00pm a mother was referred to our hospital for cord prolapse. It was breach. When I saw the cord dangling I 'knew' the baby was dead, but the midwife said she had heard the foetal heart. 
An emergency C/Section was done by our medical officer, and the baby delivered. Baby did not breath at minute zero. The Anaesthetist (Vincent) you trained in neonatal resuscitation swung to action. He breathed for the baby for 5 seconds and the baby started breathing on his own."

Thames Valley e-Rotary is a new venture, introducing a different set of opportunities for those wishing to support their local community but unable to participate regularly though pressures of work, family or travel. This new group operates online with regular discussions, interesting speakers and support for local communities.

The aim is to offer Rotary 24/7 so you can keep informed of the latest developments and projects and offer what time you can to participate in activities undertaken by ordinary people just like yourself. Find out more on Facebook

Thames Valley e-Rotary could offer a solution. No matter your background, age, experience or skills, Rotary can bring a new dimension into your life. Why not connect with us and find out for yourself?    http://thamesvalleyerotary.org/
