New Volunteering Opportunities

Martin Worster, our Programme Director, has just returned from a visit to Uganda where he has been discussing a number of exciting new potential opportunities for volunteering with the Trust. As well as the now well known and highly regarded Diploma course in Biomedical Engineering at Kyambogo University we wll also be sending volunteers this summer to do similar work with the students on a new Bachelor's degree course that the University have just started up, in Mechatronics and Biomedical Engineering. 

Whilst out in Uganda Martin also met with Permanent Secretary Priscilla Nabikoneka, and Engineers Sitra and Kutaaha of the Ministry of Health Infrastructure Division, to look at ways in which the Trust's volunteers could help to up-skill in-service technicians and engineers through a series of National workshops.

Another exciting project will see our volunteers working with the Lab technicians of the National Bloodbank in Uganda to train them in the maintenance and repair of crucial lab equipment, so we are particularly keen to hear from BMETs with some experience with equipment such as autoclaves, blood washers, centrifuges and the like. If any of these opportunities excites you please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
