There is an immediate and on-going need for  OB/GYN assistance at Mbingo.  With no full-time  OB/GYN support the medical staff deals with an overwhelming workload.  OB/GYN, GYN, ONC and URO/GYN would be very helpful to both teach and assist within their various sub-specialties.  Mbingo will accept for a minimum two week commitment, not including travel.

All volunteers are self-funded.  World Medical Mission will assist with booking flights, obtaining visas, medical registration, in-country travel arrangements, room and board.  Ten to twelve weeks is required for proper placement and logistical planning.

If you are an evangelical Christian OB/GYN, GYN, ONC, URO/GYN currently licensed in the US or Canada and are interested in volunteering to meet this need, please contact Becky Richmond by email or by phone at 828-278-1203.
