I am doing a 358 km cycle ride through Madagascar in September 2017, to raise funds for Obstetric and Gynecological research


The Genesis Research Trust aims to improve the health of the unborn child and its mother, which is acheived by promoting, by all available means, the study of healthy childbearing and diseases of women. They provides financial assistance for medical research and teaching in the field of gynaecology, obstetrics and related fields in paediatrics.
