Interface Uganda has agreed to help Mohamed Abdelrahman, a general surgeon from Sudan, in his training to become a plastic surgeon. He worked with Andrew Hodges briefly – visiting and working for a short while at Corsu hospital. The training fellowship is for 2 years at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan – it is a renowned Plastic and Reconstructive Unit (Vikram Devaraj spent 3 months there when he was training in Plastics). Interface has funded his air fare and a bit of subsistence money for the first 6 months. At present there are no plastic surgeons in Sudan, so if after the 2 years training he returns to Sudan and does what he hopes, then Interface will be able to be justifiably proud of their involvement.
We are hoping that Mohamed will update us on how he is getting on, so have a look at the website from time to time for more updates.
