From the Surgeon
Not only were we advancing sustainable pediatric surgical care through the training 18 surgeons from nine African countries, but in addition we were also providing novel, affordable muscle stimulators thereby providing an essential tool to perform precise and high quality surgery for children in their own country! Thus advancing the overlapping missions of Mending Kids and GP STEP to facilitate local sustainable surgical care for children worldwide. It simply does not get better than this! I certainly hope that together, we can create many more opportunities such as this in the near future!
Simply put, this is the most rewarding and gratifying response our team could have ever received! I myself was both deeply humbled, yet exceedingly proud of the 'change in thinking' in which our entire team played a role.
