In the first mission trip outside of Vietnam, four members of International Extremity Project (IEP) are heading to Namibia next week. Dr. Bruce Lehnert and Jenni Lehnert, RN, will be traveling from the United States and Drs. Meir Nyska and Benny Kish will be traveling from Israel. Dr. Kish is new to the team.
In addition to patient screenings and surgeries, the team will meet with the country's Minister of Health, and do a one-day medical seminar. They'll be working with the University of Namibia Medical School and the public hospitals in Windhoek, the country's capital and largest city.
The Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) will also
film some of the team's work for newscasts and plans to interview Dr. Lehnert on Good
Morning Namibia during the the first week of the trip. Keep an eye on the website for trip updates and hopefully news footage as well!
