Dr. Azer Returns from Medical Mission to Rwanda

Category: News

Dr. Nigel Azer recently returned from his third medical mission trip to Rwanda.  Along with physicians in other specialties, he made a great impact on the Eastern Rwandan refugee camp of Kagyeo treating approximately two-hundred patients with general orthopaedic care, medical care and minor surgical procedures.  While in Rwanda, the team led two conferences training local physicians and one conference for training and equipping the community nurses.  Community nurses provide the majority of medical care in the villages of Rwanda.

Dr. Azer also spent some of his time with the physicians at two hospitals – the Rwanda Military Hospital and C.H.U.K. also know as the University Teaching Hospital of Kigali.
