I am a Consultant Radiologist based in Liverpool with a specialist interest in head, neck and abdominal imaging.
Partnering with R4A for my first charitable trip to Nairobi remains one of the best decisions I have made. Not only was I able to share the knowledge I am fortunate to have gained in the U.K. with those operating under far more challenging settings in Kenya, but I did so with an incredibly talented team of health professionals.
Every single member of this international team operates selflessly in their efforts to upskill the local healthcare providers with a unifying aim - to improve the lives of those much less fortunate than us.
In this picture, we stand close to a purpose-built facility for those nearing the end of life that was funded by the charity and its local partners.
This experience taught me - amongst many things - that we have so much more than we could ever need in Europe and that we should be so grateful for the life we have been blessed with.
