ReSurge International

Since 1969, ReSurge International has built surgical capacity and provided more than 110,000 surgeries in developing countries. We provide reconstructive surgical care for poor children and adults who lack access in 15 countries, renewing the health of 3,000 people each year—so they can go to school, provide for their families, and be productive members of society.
