We dream of a world where no child suffers from lack of access to safe surgery.
For too many families around the world, safe surgery is not an option.

That’s what drives each and every one of us: our global network of medical professionals, who donate hundreds of thousands of hours toward the care of children around the world each year, and our supporters who are moved every day to make a difference in the lives of children they’ve never met.
As long as there are children in the world who need our help, we’ll do whatever it takes to give them the quality care they deserve.

Children need their mothers and their mothers need a strong foundation of education and skills to escape the vicious cycle of poverty in Guatemala.
