WINGS OF HEALING: Northwood charity needs help to continue incredible work

 Published on: 30th November 2020   |   By: Jake Levison   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Northwood-based charity which provides people in Ethiopia with urgent medical care is desperate for donations at this difficult time.

Doctor Onsy Louca (pictured centre), a consultant gynaecologist from town, founded Wings of Healing in 2012 after visiting the country and seeing how little medical attention women were getting there. 

He decided to use his more than 30 years of medical experience to help treat the women there and to train junior Ethiopian doctors.

For the last eight years, Dr Louca and an acquired team of UK volunteer medics and Ethiopian doctors and nurses have treated tens of thousands of patients in clinic, performed more than 2,600 surgical procedures for women and have seen more than 20,000 women for screening.

The team, based in 10 Linksway, visit Ethiopia monthly – and with a population of 92 million people, there is always more work to be done.

Mr Louca’s outstanding work was recognised by former Prime Minister, Teresa May, in 2017 when he was awarded the UK’s 738th Point of Light.
