Two Gambian medical doctors who were funded by the Fatou Bah Barrow Foundation (FaBB) to undergo a three-month training on infertility treatment in India returned home to serve the public at their respective posts.
Dr Masirending Njie of Serre Kunda General Hospital and Dr Momodou Nyassi of Bansang General Hospital were on Wednesday received at the airport by Ms Betty Saine, communications and logistics officer of the FaBB Foundation.
In collaboration with Merck Foundation, FaBB Foundation facilitated and fully funded the training of the two doctors in this area that is considered to be of key health concern to Gambian couples.
The trainings came through the foundation’s health initiative and it is geared towards complimenting the efforts of the government through intervention in key areas with the support of the Ministry of Health and Social welfare.
Ms Betty Saine thanked the doctors for their commitment and patience to undergo the training in India. She also assured them of the Foundation’s commitment to facilitate more of such trainings for other doctors in other areas in the future.
“We hope what you have learned from your training and that the knowledge will benefit every couple going through infertility issues in The Gambia,” Ms Saine said, expressing hope that another team would soon follow on theirs.
