Rotary Doctor Bank

Thu, Feb 28th 2019 at 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Saving lives in developing countries.


The Rotary Doctor Bank of Great Britain and Ireland provides funding for volunteer healthcare workers to travel to developing countries to treat patients and to provide teaching to doctors, nurses and midwives. Most of our work is in Uganda in East Africa, but we have also supported assignments in Zambia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Zanzibar, Ghana, Liberia, Morocco, Burkina Faso, Burma, the Philippines, Nepal and Kiribati (formally the Ellice Islands).

This meeting will be held at Minchinhampton Golf Club.
