A quote from our CEO

"It is unacceptable that any child should die, or live their life in agonising pain or disability, because of a surgically treatable condition. We believe every single child has a right to life. Access to safe surgery is a key component of this."

You can join our fight to provide safe surgery to every single child when they need it by volunteering on one of our projects, in our head office or in our warehouse and by following us on social media and sharing our posts.
