Sister Katie joined Dr Andrew Browning at the Selian Hospital in Tanzania in April 2013 and has quickly established herself as a key member of Andrew’s team, and the head of the midwife training school. Katie now travels to the other BMF projects in Africa; the Vision Maternity Care Hospital in Barhirdar and Valerie Browning’s maternity hospital in Mille, to train and mentor local midwives, and to give support to the ex-pat medical volunteers working in those units. She has now committed to staying with the Foundation for the long-term, to develop and expand the midwife training program and to assist Andrew and Valerie in the task of providing essential and quality maternal care for the poor women of Africa.

We do hope you can join us to meet this special woman!
