Consistent funding enables CSI to build its capacity to serve more children and communities, increase our global footprint and improve the overall quality of care that children in our partner countries have access to.

CSI medical volunteer and current board member, Dody Barr, RN, shared why she became a CSI Sustainer, setting up monthly recurring donations. 

“I’ve witnessed the evolution of this humanitarian nonprofit organization, whose goal of providing the best possible care to vulnerable children of the world has never wavered. CSI’s approach differs from other organizations as they not only provide free, life-changing surgeries for children in underdeveloped countries, but also furnish education and training to the host countries’ eager medical professionals. CSI’s desire is to educate themselves out of a job, training their local partners to become experts in the care of their children and in the training of their colleagues.”

Join Dody and become a CSI Sustainer today. Set up your recurring donation of any size at childrenssurgeryintl.org/donate.

Do you enjoy making blankets? 
In addition to providing comfort as patients separate from their parents in pre-op, small blankets CSI volunteers use during surgical trips serve an essential medical purpose. During and after anesthesia, its important to ensure our pediatric patients maintain their core body temperature, and being wrapped in a cozy blanket can help. At discharge, the children love to take these blankets with them as a treasured gift. Comment or message us for more information about how to donate blankets to CSI.

CSI’s work is marked by displays of extraordinary resilience. We are witness to the strength and determination of the children and families we serve who sacrifice so much for the chance at life-changing care and the promise of a more stable and typical life. We see our partners prevail in the face of tremendous political, human rights and safety challenges. We watch our incredible volunteers work tirelessly at home and abroad to ensure that CSI can continue to deliver on our mission and vision in meaningful ways. We find a way forward—not in spite of the challenges, but because of them.
