Fundación Doctor Clavel

Doctor Clavel Foundation is an initiative of neurosurgeon Dr. Pablo Clavel and his team, inspired by the humanitarian intention to help those who need it most.

In the Foundation we work with hospitals in developing countries, to improve the quality of life of their patients and to encourage the study of diseases related to spinal pathologies.

Since 2013, we have been working to bring neurosurgery to where it is urgently needed. Our project is carried out in Adama, capital of the state of Oromia, the most populated region of Ethiopia. In Ethiopia there are more than 105,983,124 inhabitants and there are only twenty surgeons.

We are EFFORT, DEDICATION and HOPE
We are the only Neurosurgery Foundation in Ethiopia.

“It always seems impossible until it's done.” – Nelson Mandela

Our Mission

At Doctor Clavel Foundation we carry out frequent missions. Our job is to visit patients, operate on those who need surgery, train doctors and equip them with hospital equipment. We provide training to the staff of Hospital Medical College so that our work does not stop when we leave, sharing our knowledge so that local professionals can treat patients and train the next generation of neurosurgeons in the region.

We currently carry out about 6 missions a year, but the goal is to achieve one a month.

A GREAT MEDICAL TEAM, A CLEAR OBJECTIVE, A MISSION TO CARRY OUT.
