The organisation (RAP 3 Connect) approached Dr Ray and his team during his recent visit to Nepal. RAP 3 Connect is a well-respected UK Aid Organisation that promotes empowerment of women in rural and remote areas of Nepal. (More info: http://rapnepal.com/about-rap3-connect )
Dr Ray is thrilled to be working with this illustrious group. “RAP 3 have an outstanding reputation within Nepal for promoting opportunities for women and youth. But so many of the women they’ve selected to help are restricted by genital prolapse. RAP 3 have asked A4WH to provide surgery to these women to allow them to continue working.”
Dr Ray training local doctors on the techniques of screening of women with genital prolapse.
Preoperative screening of 300 women suffering with genital prolapse has now commenced. These women are in the district of Achham in Far West Nepal. Those eligible for surgery will undergo their treatment at the next camp at Bayalpata Hospital in Achham March, 2018
The March camp will involve teaching of local Nepalese doctors to tackle this problem to be managed in the longer term in western Nepal. RAP 3 will partner with A4WH for this training camp.
A4WH is seeking volunteers for the next surgical camp. We currently require pelvic floor surgeons, theatre nurses and general assistants for a two or three week period in early March 2018 . For more information regarding this camp, please contact A4WH through our website.
