Fundraising Events

For more than 20 years, from Ethiopia to Sierra Leone, Tanzania to Togo, Dr Andrew Browning has been helping underprivileged women by treating and preventing obstetric fistulas – a debilitating condition resulting from obstructed childbirth. Since then the Browning family has founded the Barbara May Foundation which has built and runs hospitals in remote and regional sub-Saharan Africa, trains staff and runs programmes that provide free maternal healthcare for the world’s most disadvantaged women.

Join Dr Andrew Browning for dinner and conversation about his work, and that of his aunt, Valerie Browning AM. We will also be celebrating Andrew’s new book, A Doctor in Africa. We will have copies on hand to purchase and you can have them personally signed by Andrew. (What a great Christmas gift idea!) There will also be a terrific Silent Auction with some unique items on which to bid to help us in our fundraising.

If you are unable to attend but would like to donate to support the work of the Foundation, you can do so securely online.
