Sierra Leonean Anaesthetist trainee Dr Mohamed Kargbo has arrived in Accra, Ghana where he will spend a couple of weeks at the Reconstructive Plastic Surgery and Burns Unit, Korle Bu Training hospital before leaving for India where he will embark upon his training in Anaesthesiology at Professor Raja Sabapathy’s unit in Coimbatore – supported by Resurge Africa and the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health. Dr Kargbo had planned to begin his training last year, however when the Ebola Crisis took hold, Dr Kargbo admirably opted to remain in Sierra Leone where he felt that he was needed most.
During his stay in Accra, Dr Karbo will be hosted by Resurge director and head of the Unit in Accra, Mr Opoku Ware Ampomah and fellow Sierra Leonean Dr Abdulai Jalloh. He will also receive guidance from one of the Ghana unit’s qualified Reconstructive surgeon, Dr Edem Anyigba who has spent time in the Coimbatore Unit, returning to Ghana from training in India last year.
The team at Resurge and our American partners at Surg+Restore wish Dr Kargbo all the best.
