“As former Canadian Ambassador to Cote d’Ivoire, Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger, I came to know and greatly respect the peoples of Sub-Saharan Africa. They face huge challenges in maternal health care and trauma. CNIS volunteer doctors from Canada are making important contributions through their life-saving surgical teaching program and the support of the development of local capacity. I‘m impressed and will continue to support CNIS, and will visit Mali this year to see CNIS’ operations in the field”
John Bell, Honorary Consul in Vancouver, Côte d’Ivoire
