John Lemberger, a retired urologist from Nottingham, England told us about his plans to literally climb mountains to support our unit in Uganda for women affected by obstetric fistula.
‘I have been to Kitovu Hospital to do fistula surgery for three years and will go annually. Sister Maura [Lynch] is inspirational. ‘Climbing Kilimanjaro has been an aim vaguely for years but I have taken the plunge with enthusiasm and want to raise some funds for MMM, specifically for Kitovu fistula work, which would be for equipment. I have no specific item in mind but it is clear that at the very least, replacement of aging kit will always be necessary. The expedition begins 12 August and I am going with my youngest son, Joe, who is also a doctor.’
