Who are we

Our prime aim is to establish a reconstructive surgery and burns service in West Africa, through the training and empowerment of local doctors, anaesthetists, nurses and physiotherapists.  Our legacy is permanent self-sustaining change to the predicament of the lack of local skills.

What we do

Many Africans, young and old, suffer from deformity and disability caused by birth defects, accidents, burns, diseases, and more. Reconstructive surgery can offer them hope and healing. In Ghana, a successful training hub for reconstructive surgery and burns has been established.

Get involved

For more than two decades, we’ve been working to create a brighter future for a huge number of children and adults. We rely wholly on the support of people like you to carry out our work. By donating to Resurge Africa, you’ll know that you have personally helped bring hope to the enormous number of people.

Reconstructive Surgery rebuilds bodies damaged by fire, accidents, cancers, war and birth defects.

We don’t provide temporary services from visiting surgeons that make a short-term difference. Resurge Africa has the long term aim of training and empowering local medical staff. These Surgeons, Anaesthetists, Nurses and Therapists have attained levels of skill that have lead to the creation of a permanent and self sustaining reconstructive surgery service in Ghana.

Donate today!

95% of everything we receive is spent directly on providing support and training for medical professionals in West Africa and the creation of self-sustaining reconstructive surgery units across the region. Every penny, whether it’s a one-off gift or a regular donation, helps make a massive difference.
