Dr Grace Kodindo
Dr Grace Kodindo is our Inspiration. Chadian by birth she spent 30 years in her home country working as an Obstetrician/Gynaecologist following 7 years of medical training in Canada. Grace’s committment to the care of Chadian women shone through the BBC PANORAMA programme “Dead Mums Don’t Cry” which brought such an overwhelming response from so many UK viewers and continues to be shown throughout the world. Grace is currently working in New York with RAISE, an organisation which aims to raise the standard of care to women in emergency settings, but hopes to return to Chad to work and to rejoin her family.
