The HOW foundation, in partnership with the Dangote Foundation made a substantial donation to enable Nigerian Surgeons attend the International Colorectal Disease Symposium 2020 held at the David Citadel Hotel in Jerusalem, Israel hosted by Prof. Steven D. Wexner, Director, Digestive Disease Centre Cleveland Clinic Florida and Prof. Hagit Tulchinsky, Head, Isreal Society of Colon and Rectal Surgery.
Dr Steven said to The HOW Foundation ;"The participation of the Nigerian surgeons in the Cleveland Clinic Florida colorectal surgery meeting was the inaugural step in collaboration to improve outcomes throughout Nigeria. Specifically your generosity allowed a Nigerian surgical society to be founded which will allow members to continually interact and to periodically meet to achieve the goals of the cost effective optimisation of outcomes".
The meetings are held as an opportunity for surgeons and medical professionals in like-minded fields to meet and exchange vital knowledge and experiences that can help in the general advancement of the fields.
Below is a video from the Israeli President, Reuven Rivlin, appreciating the importance of the gathering organised by Dr Steven.
