Peterborough Medical Brigade looks to Uganda for 2020
Dr. Hardy Friesen is founder of the Peterborough Medical Brigade, a revolving team of doctors and medical professionals based in Peterborough.
Team members pay their own fare, then volunteer to deliver medical services for up to 2-weeks under harsh and demanding conditions.
“Uganda in 2020” is the 20th medical brigade to a country in desperate need of medical care and service. In the last two decades, PMB has also taken medical teams and aid to Honduras, Philippines and Indonesia.
As Dr. Friesen tells Global News Morning Peterborough, often the dire healthcare needs of a third world community connect goes beyond medical treatment.
