Today we are celebrating four years of the David Nott Foundation.
Thank you for your support; for four years of running marathons, training surgeons, technological pioneering and building global networks.
Throughout the week on social media we have been highlighting some of the achievements that we have made so far:
We have taken our Hostile Environment Surgical Training (HEST) course to nine countries, running twelve courses with seven partner organisations. The result of this has been that 543 doctors have now been trained in cutting-edge surgical techniques that, in conflict and disaster zones, will mean the difference between life or death.
Back in the UK, we have collaborated with the Royal College of Surgeons of England to produce six Surgical Training for Austere Environments (STAE) courses, bringing surgeons and doctors from 25 countries to London to complete this unique course. We are particularly proud that we were able to offer 62 full scholarships for these courses, widening our outreach and reducing barriers to accessing this life-changing training for surgeons who would not otherwise be able to participate.
Our global family of physicians, surgeons, doctors, donors and supporters is growing every day. The stories we hear from all involved are both humbling and inspiring. We look forward to the next four years with excitement and determination, and hope you will join us in our endeavour.
Conflict doesn’t stop, and neither do we: we have helped to save 1.3 million lives and limbs but can help so many more. Find out how you can get involved and donate to the Foundation on our ‘Get Involved‘ page, or suggest any fundraising ideas in an email to [email protected]
