Instead of retirement, mission in Zambia
A project of the Basel Association for Medical Cooperation
TagesWoche The journey to the remote district hospital is dangerous and arduous, yet the retired family doctor Hans-Ruedi Banderet from Basel takes on these hardships to support the hospital in Zambia, where normally only 4 doctors work.
Banderet, co-founder of the Basel Association for Medical Cooperation, sees a certain charm in working with the simplest means despite the need on the ground, but when suddenly the X-ray unit fails, one reaches its limits.
