Resurge Africa is very proud of its training program, and our dedicated and committed trainees.
Since the charity was founded in 1992, through the generosity and hard work of our supporters, Resurge Africa has helped to transform the face of reconstructive surgery in West Africa. Over the years in partnership with our supporters and donors we have raised well over 1 million pounds as well as donations of equipment and essential consumables. Without their support, none of our work would be possible. We are creating lasting change in West Africa – but there is still more work to be done. 2017 marked the 25th anniversary of the founding of the charity and 2018 saw the inauguration of a brand new, state of the art Burns ICU unit at Korle-Bu training hospital, funded entirely by money raised in Ghana by Ghanaians. Headed up by Resurge Africa Director, newly appointed CEO of Korle-bu and former Resurge surgical trainee Mr Opoku Ware Ampomah, the reconstructive plastic surgery and burns unit in Accra, Ghana is now entirely self-sufficient and is the model for a similar project at the Holy Spirit Hospital in Makeni, Sierra Leone, run by ReSurge Director Dr Patrick Turay. Amongst our trainees are Sierra Leone’s first two trainee reconstructive surgeons.
