Defined by our values and dedicated to living by them.

Patient safety comes first. We believe safety and high-quality care create excellent surgical outcomes, and we commit to utilizing advanced safety practices and knowledge.

Education maximizes impact. We believe education and training of local medical teams builds self- sufficiency so communities can meet the needs of many more children in the future.

Collaboration begins with respect. We believe partnerships with local practitioners and respect for their culture lead to better outcomes.

Volunteers change the equation. We believe selfless gifts of time, talent and expertise from volunteers make it possible to multiply the investment of our supporters.
