In a few weeks I will be going with the Operation Rainbow team to Port au Prince, Haiti to provide free orthopedic surgery for children and adults.
The needs in Haiti are tremendous. We typically provide 30-45 surgical procedures in a week. Most of the patients are poor children, with birth defects such as clubfoot, cerebral palsy, and other orthopedic problems. Due to poverty and lack of resources, most present in advanced stages of their conditions, neglected, and untreated. This creates challenges, but we do our best to provide safe, state of the art, orthopedic surgery by bringing down a team of skilled nurses, technicians, surgeons, anesthesiologists and CRNAs.
It is expensive to mount these missions, as we must bring all our equipment, surgical gear, O.R. drapes, medications, and even nutritional supplements for the patients.
All donations are tax deductible, as they are directed to our parent organization, Operation Rainbow, which is a 501(c)(3) corporation.
Please consider supporting our cause!
