Dr. Nika Kornitzki and Dr. Shirley Grynberg are the latest amazing volunteers to participate in the Israeli Medicine on the Equator project.

The two recently headed out to Uganda, where they will spend the next few months volunteering at the Kiboga District Hospital, as well as participating in medical outreach programs and community clinics.

The hospital serves as the only significant medical facility for a population of over 400,000, and sadly is significantly underresourced and understaffed.

As with previous volunteers, in addition to patient care Dr. Kornitzki and Dr. Grynberg will be training local teams of healthcare workers.

We wish both the new doctors the best of luck in their life-saving work.
