At Resurge Africa, we train and empower medical staff working in some of the world’s poorest countries to perform reconstructive surgery, creating a brighter future for the huge number of children and adults affected by debilitating and disfiguring injuries and birth defects.
Many charities provide valuable medical missions to Africa, but their impact is measured in weeks and months. At Resurge Africa, we want to deliver lasting change; to establish self-sustaining reconstructive surgery and burns services in West Africa. Through the training and empowering of surgeons, nurses, physiotherapists, anaesthetists and other clinical staff, and the creation of much-needed infrastructure and facilities, eventually these units will operate independently, without the need for overseas aid of any kind.
