of dollars worth of medical supplies and equipment, which means that
more of our precious financial resources can be dedicated to providing life-changing

help increase the surgical capacity in developing countries.
Loupes Around the World
In 2007, Loupes Around the World was founded to provide surgeons in developing countries with the loupes they need to better operate on their patients. Surgical loupes are magnifying glasses that allow surgeons to see smaller delicate structures when operating. Since 2008, ReSurge's programs have benefited from the donations Loupes Around the World has made to its partners around the world.

surgery because of RMHC’s partnership with ReSurge.
