More News from Des Pyper (’68), Gambia

Des graduated in 1968 and retired from full-time work 5 years ago but becoming bored, has been working in Gambia as a volunteer dental “doctor”.

Des teaches, trains and acts as a GDP, working in Kotu with Swedish Charities set up in the ‘90’s by Lars Goran.

This is the only European clinic and village work is via back-pack consisting mainly of local anaesthetic forceps extractions.

If anyone could spare a couple of months it would be helpful as there are only 2 or occasionally 3 dentists trying to provide a service throughout the year.
