Rome, Italy A Work Camp in Madagascar
Rome’s Campus Bio-Medical University has carried out an international service project in Madagascar. Many of the activities took place at the St. Damien Surgical Medical Center, in the city of Ambanja. Students and teachers provided assistance to the local staff in their daily tasks in the operating room, in the analysis laboratory, in the departments of radiology, dentistry, ophthalmology, etc. In addition, in collaboration with local pediatricians, tests were carried out to identify cases of malnutrition and anemia in children, and treatment was provided thanks to donations raised from the students and teachers taking part in this project.
