ReSurge’s Surgical Team made it safely to Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, despite a few brief delays due to the political unrest there last week.
Our international partners from Dhaka, Dr. Shafquat Khundhar, Dr. Farzana Ibrahim and Dr. Iftekhar Mannan, have joined our medical volunteers to perform surgery for the poor in the Cox’s Bazar region.
ReSurge’s medical volunteers are: Myles Standish, Kathy Gallagher, Celeste McCartney, Elise Gettings and Karen Pitbladdo. They are joined by volunteers and trip sponsors Rob Williams and Eileen Sheldon, who will serve as documentarians on the trip.
The focus of the American and Bangladesh team will be educational medical exchange and training -- of doctors, nurses and therapists on burn treatment to frontline community health workers on burn first aid.
More updates on this amazing team will be posted throughout the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned!
