The 10-years-old African-Hungarian Union (AHU) is now the biggest civil organisation in Middle Europe to be occupied with international relief and development. Their flagships are primarily the missions and programmes coordinated to give medical and humanitarian assistance with the main goal of healing and the moderation of the critical lack of medical workers in the developing countries.
According to the report at the National Press Service (OS), AHU starts its 14th medical mission to Africa (they’ve attended to more than 40 thousand patients so far), but this is going to be a really special one. This mission requires a more profound preparation than ever, because the participants of the mission are experienced professors who are going to execute special operations.
The preparations before the mission started last year, when the doctors of AHU’s first Malawi mission visited Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Blantyre, where they got to know the hospital’s otorhinolaryngologist, who is the only otorhinolaryngologist in Malawi. So AHU is starting a special surgery mission to support and relieve his work. The voluntary team of doctors will primarily execute ear operations during the mission, and other head-neck surgical interventions. Besides their practice, the Hungarian doctors will also train their Malawi colleague in an informal way.
Listed below are the experts who take part in this special mission:
The work of the doctors’ mission will be helped by AHU’s partner organisation, the Hungarian Trade & Cultural Centre (HTCC) in Malawi.
