Trainees and trainers are reunited in Sudan this week for Phase I Trip II of ISUOG Outreach. The trainees have been mentored by trainers via Whatsapp since their last training sessions in November 2016, so were excited to finally meet in person again! Trainees have been eager and enthusiastic to receive more hands-on training, delivered by ISUOG volunteer Outreach trainers.
