A Monumental day for the Midland Doctors Charity.
After years of hard work, the day has finally arrived, the opening of the operating theatres!
Our feelings are overwhelming, following the blood, sweat and tears that have been shed. And none of this would have been possible without the amazing, continuous support from our worldwide donors.
Please share and join in our excitement and extend the news to everyone that you know.
Ifti, our Chairman, is currently on site embarking on this momentous occasion, and in a couple of days, to be followed by further executives of the charity. (All travel expenses paid by themselves).
