We are delighted to have a team at the Muhimbili National Hospital, Tanzania, this week, consulting on many children with complex cases and performing much needed surgeries.  Long-term OCL volunteer Prof. Fergal Quinn, Consultant Paediatric Surgeon and Urologist, Children’s Hospital Crumlin is joined by Dr Abdulrahman Al Shafie, Neonatal/Paediatric Surgery and Paediatric Urology specialist, Bahrain Defence Force Hospital, and Clinical Tutor in Surgery, Royal College of Surgeon Ireland – Bahrain, on this visit.
