There are millions of children in the world who are suffering and dying from medical problems that can be solved through miracle surgeries. These surgeries are very quick and inexpensive. The only reason these children haven’t received them is because they are poor. WonderWork was created to provide free surgeries for these children.
- 15 million severely burned children are waiting for surgery.
- 2 million children with clubfoot are waiting for surgery.
- 1 million blind children are waiting for surgery.
The way they do it is unique
They empower local surgeons in developing countries.
Instead of sending doctors on 2-week missions, WonderWork empowers local surgeons through free training, equipment and crucial financial support. This is the smartest way to deliver surgeries in developing countries.
They set high standards for safety and quality.
The safety of their patients is their #1 priority. Their safety and quality protocols ensure their patients receive the best care possible. They audit results and provide free training for all of their partners.
They help children no one else will help.
They work in the poorest countries in the world. They tackle problems no one else will touch. They go to places other charities won’t go. They help children who have been waiting for years for the miracle surgery that can save them.
