27th Rotary Foundation Paul Harris Breakfast
 
GUEST SPEAKER
Dr Andrew Browning
Maternal health care in Africa- an Australian intervention
 
Dr Andrew Browning spent 17 years living with his family in Ethiopia and Tanzania amongst some of the poorest people in the world.
He specialises in treating a devastating birth injury called obstetric fistula. This results from women giving birth at home, without medical help. In labour for four or five days they deliver a stillborn child and the tissues in their pelvis are destroyed, leaving them with large holes (fistula) to their bladder and bowel. Leaking continually they are shunned, depressed and suicidal.
Andrew is one of only a handful of surgeons in the world who have dedicated their lives to helping treat and prevent this. His charity has now built three maternity hospitals in Africa and aims to build many more.
 
 
All funds raised will be used to support Rotary Foundation projects
that make lives better in your community and around the world
