Memorial service for Women in foreign medical missions

The commemoration will be held on Sunday, 25th of February, at 12:00, at Serbian Orthodox Church St Sava, 89 Lancaster Road, London W11 1QQ

After the Pomen – service in church we have prepared a talk, exhibition and canapé in Dom Episkop Nikolaj, from 12:30 to 14:30.

The event is supported by Serbian organizations – Serbian Council of Great Britain, Circle of Serbian Sisters Kosovka Devojka, Serbian Society, Serbian City Club, Britic and the Embassy of Republic of Serbia.

 

Last year we gave a special tribute to Dr Elsie Inglis who died a century ago, in November 1917. This commemoration will remember all women – from Lady Leila Paget, Dr Elizabeth Ross and Flora Sandes, to Mabel Stobart, Dr Inglis and women from Scottish Women’s Hospitals – like Dr Katherine MacPhail.

Katherine and her sister Isabel, both graduated at Glasgow University, offered their services to the Scottish Women’s Hospitals when the war broke out. Together with Dr Inglis they were  in Serbia during the typhus epidemic. After the war Katherine stayed in Serbia and founded  English-Serbian Children’s Hospital in Sremska Kamenica for children who suffered from tuberculosis.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Kindest regards.
