There is an ongoing need for orthopedic surgical assistance to serve alongside the full-time Christian Cameroon Orthopedic Surgeon with an overwhelming workload.  Mbingo needs Orthopedic surgeons who are committed to teaching as well so they can share their skills, talents and abilities with residents.

Mbingo will accept for a minimum two week commitment, not including travel.

If you are an evangelical Christian ORS 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.
