We “are very grateful to work with you in Ilam Camp. It was a wonderful experience working with you both in surgical and clinical cases. You and your whole team were very helpful.” We were “Grateful to work with you in surgery. We learned lots of new techniques in Surgery. You also gave us a chance to do Surgery Independently which is a great achievement. As a whole, Ilam camp was full of new achievements for us.”

Dr. Ernesto Jones
Family physician from the UK
“I had the pleasure of working with Worldwide Healing Hands whilst placed at Ilam Community Hospital; part of my Out Of Programme Experience as a GP trainee. I thought they did a fantastic job of providing free gynecological healthcare to a community much in need. The experience I gained as a result made my placement even more valuable. Their work included operations, cervical screening and patient education. I found the staff very friendly and committed to their mission, often working in challenging conditions with very few resources and long hours. I also had the great pleasure of meeting the leaders of the team and experiencing the valuable teaching that they provided both to doctors and midwives. Working with the team was an unforgettable pleasurable experience and would love to work with them again.”

Dr. Subba joined us in 2012 and again on our 2013 mission in Ilam. He mentioned that he delayed leaving for his pediatric residency because he had such a good experience with us. Afterwards he wrote that he “wanted to thank you for all the valuable lessons you gave me while you were here.”
