Rotary Club Clare: Hand & Plastic Surgery Program in Bhutan

Posted: February 2020

Suzanne and Dr Tim Proudman, Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon, were invited by the Rotary Club in Clare to present on our Hand and Plastic Surgery Program in Bhutan. We are seeking support to assist with training Bhutan’s first Plastic Surgeon. Dr Sonam Jamtsho commenced training on 10th February at Ganga Hospital in Coimbatore, India with the eminent Dr Raja Sabapathy. The Rotary Club of Clare generously donated $3000, which will help with Dr Jamtsho living expenses while training.

"We’ve helped set up hand care clinics in Bhutan, provided specialist equipment and trained local staff."
