Chev. Dr. David Woolf reports:
As 2019 draws to a close I enclose the latest telemedicine field report from our Clinical Advisor, Mr Daniel Morris CMLJ, of the Samburu Trust. As with previous Samburu reports please be aware that it contains quite graphic clinical images.
Daniel’s report covers the recent trachoma surgical camp that was run in Samburu. Funding from the Commandery of Wales has been instrumental in establishing and maintaining much of this surgical and medical work in the field in Samburu. Thank you once again for your generosity in providing support for these hospitaller projects.
Looking ahead into 2020, the Commandery Executive has agreed to continue our close links with the Samburu Trust. The Commandery appeal for World Leprosy Day 2020 launched this weekend at our Epiphany dinner and running until the end of January 2020, will be split 75% in favour of the Grand Priory leprosy appeal and 25% for our ongoing Samburu telemedicine work.
