On 25 April 2015 a devastating earthquake struck Nepal - all VSO volunteers and staff are safe. Our thoughts remain with all those affected. Please donate to our appeal today

Sharing skills and saving lives

VSO volunteer Chris Jary, a UK doctor, worked in a severely under-resourced district hospital in Masindi, Uganda. It is meant to have 11 doctors (including Chris) – but it had just four - serving a population of around 500,000 people - some of whom live up to 80 miles away.
