  • One hundred children have traveled to the U.S. for donated surgery from 8 countries since the year 2000 under our stateside program.
  • In 2008 we added a dental component to our surgical mission trips.
  • Our orthotics and prosthetics continues to be a vital part of providing healthy self-sufficiency in rural Central America.
