What do we do

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.  In the past twelve years, our supporters have raised over £1 million to support our work, with a similar value donated as free goods and services.  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 marks the 25th anniversary of the founding of the charity.  Headed up by ReSurge Director 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 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.
