My name is Dr. Peter Smith from York, England, and I have just returned from my 8th visit to the FIMRC site in Bududa District, Eastern Uganda. Like many physicians, I have always wanted to work in the developing world but found difficulty in finding work where my skills could complement and add to a situation. When I decided to travel to the developing world I was concerned about working within my capabilities. When I contacted FIMRC I actually expressed an interest in their project in India, however they took a very careful note of my CV and suggested Uganda!
