“I want to thank you and your company for the training I received in New Hampshire before going to Togo. We are very pleased with the ease of use of this system. My assistant in Togo has already used it three times and we already are starting to see improvement on our young patient’s pressure ulcer. Your system is a good fit for us because we don’t have electricity in the bush.” Madeleine Allard RN, BN, CW
As the director, Madeleine is the liaison between North American Church volunteers, National Christian Organizations, and governmental authorities. Madeleine started to introduce wound care in all the medical outreaches done in Africa, since many patients came with chronic wounds. Many people in Africa suffer from chronic wounds; this number is even higher among the population living in the bush. These people have no access to specialized nursing and their wounds get worse for lack of proper care. MMI provides wound care during bush outreaches. These projects are done in the bush, outside of the city of Sokode, where the needs of the people are the greatest.
