We are very pleased to announce that one of our ex-volunteers is going to be getting married.
Dr Chris Bonham volunteered alongside a colleague and friend (Dr Dominic Fudge) back in 2011. They made a fantastic contribution whilst in Bansang; delivering countless babies, and making numerous lifesaving interventions. They also brought real spirit and humour to the hospital – which is clear to see given how often the staff ask when they will be returning!
Chris will be marrying …his fiancé, Dr Yuki Takagi, in a lovely, leafy village in Northamptonshire this coming June. Their wedding venue could not be further from the hot, dusty and challenging environment of Bansang. Yet it is perhaps a measure of them both that at this joyous moment in their lives, they will be forgoing gifts for themselves in favour of charity donations.
We are incredibly grateful to them both for choosing the BHA as one of their two chosen charities (Wateraid being the other beneficiary).
Here’s to Chris and Yuki’s wonderful future together (and to getting you both out to the Gambia in due course)
