The journey

road-map4The journey will start in Kathmandu, where Tom and Sian are speaking at the Nepal Society for Plastic Surgery Conference.

We will travel South to Janakpur, a rural town on the flat plains of the Nepalese Terai. We will visit Janakpur Zonal Hospital, where Interburns has taught Essential Burn Care courses and where we are helping the Hospital meet International Standards for burn care.

We will then travel into Bihar, India and pass through Patma to Bodi Gaya. We will head into a very remote region to visit a small rural hospital in Jarkhand, where we have been providing therapy assistance and support with setting up a new burn unit.

We will then head to Jamshedpur and onwards to Dhaka in Bangladesh. We hope to arrive in time for the Bangladesh Society of Burn Injuries Annual Conference, where Tom and Sian have been invited to speak. We will also be visiting Dhaka Medical College,which is the main burn centre in Bangladesh and whose staff have been a part of Interburns for many years.
