Stories of Hope

Reconstructive surgery can make the difference of a lifetime, often with just a few hours of surgery. The result is permanent, immediate and dramatic.

The lives of children with deformities improve, and as they do, so do the lives of their parents, who also were spurned because of the deformities of their children or forced not to work because someone had to stay home to care for their disfigured child.

Men and women who were disabled because of tragic burns and other accidents are given a second chance through surgery and with it, the ability to work and support their families again. The impact continues to ripple through their communities and, indeed, through their countries, as more and more citizens are able to contribute to society.

From its beginnings in 1969, ReSurge International has been a pioneer in the field of reconstructive surgery, delivering an ever-expanding continuum of care to children and adults in some of the most remote regions of the world. Currently, more than 105,000 free surgeries have been provided. Children and adults—and their families—have been profoundly changed by their contact with our organization.
