Ulaan Baatar and the Gobi

A generous donation of $10,000 was recently received from Norbert Panken via his Foundation “Theo & Wiro”. This will help to sustain our teaching programme in Mongolia which continued into its second phase this September in Ulaan Baatar and the Gobi, using mosquito net mesh for the hernia repairs.

A major portion however will be put into the development of our new site in Peru where the first mission took place in February 2012. Plans for the next mission are well advanced and supported by the Society of General Surgeons of Peru.
