A welcome from our new SGL committee for 2016/17


A welcome from this years committee

As of October 2016, there has been a new committee taking over the reins of the running of The Swansea Gambia Link. We have been settling into each of our roles over the last couple of months and have been getting stuck in with fundraising to allow us to bring over 4 medical students from University of The Gambia to continue this fantastic educational collaboration. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the 2015/16 committee and wish them all the very best for their continued medical education and with their opportunity to complete part of a clinical placement in The Gambia.


We are very pleased to introduce ourselves as this years committee, with details of personnel below. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch through the SGL email account; swanseagambiasociety@gmail.com with any queries you may have.
