Having already awarded three medical outreach grants, two to UK professionals visiting Cambodia, and one to a Cambodian professional to visit the UK, we’re delighted to have awarded another SicKids grant. The recipient is Dr Bratati Bose-Haider, consultant paediatrician at Fairfield General Hospital, Bury, and the first medical doctor to benefit from our grant programme.
Bratati will be joining our Trustees, Professor Andrew Rowland and Den Carter, on a week-long visit to M’Lop Tapang, one of Cambodia’s best medical centres for children and young people, this November. She’ll provide expert advice on the management of children and young people with developmental delay – including all forms of disabilities. Her work will coincide with us building and launching our life-changing sensory room, funded by generous donations from our supporters.
A children’s doctor with over 35 years’ experience, Bratati set up the specialist child development centre in Bury. Her advice on how we can better support the children and young people with developmental delay already seen by our Chairperson Andrew, and previous grant recipients, will be invaluable.
“I’m over the moon to have the opportunity to spend time with the excellent medical team at M’Lop Tapang. Having recently joined the SicKids Trustees on one of their regular Skype clinics with the team in Cambodia, I now can’t wait to get out there and learn about their brilliant work with children and young people.”
We’re still fund raising to make our sensory rooms in the UK and Cambodia as amazing as possible.
