How We Do It
Children in the communities we serve who have deformities or other life-threatening health conditions are denied the opportunity to live a healthy, fulfilling life. By offering critical operations at significantly lower costs, we can give them that opportunity once again.
Our volunteer surgical care teams provide surgical services to thousands of local families each year, including specialized care such as general surgery, OB/GYN, pediatric surgery, orthopedic, ophthalmology, plastic surgery and dental services. We also give back to the local healthcare system through training and education, and partner with local non-profits and hospitals to reach patients living in some of the most rural parts of the country, so they can have a new chance at life.
