About ReSurge International

ReSurge International builds surgical capacity and provides reconstructive surgical care for children

and adults in developing countries who suffer from disabling injuries or congenital anomalies such

as cleft lips and palates, burns, hand injuries and other conditions.

With 95 million children worldwide living with a disability resulting from congenital conditions,

disease or injuries, fewer than 10% of whom attend school, ReSurge addresses a critical health care

need in the developing world. Through its Visiting Educator program, which includes plastic

surgeons from leading US and international universities such as Stanford, Harvard, and Johns

Hopkins, ReSurge focuses on training the next generation of reconstructive surgeons.

ReSurge’s programs increase access to sustainable, high-quality care in developing countries and

renew the health of approximately 3,000 children and adults each year so they can go to school,

provide for their families, and contribute to society. Local, developing-world surgical teams, which

ReSurge trains and supports, perform more than 85% of those surgeries.

Resurge operates in 14 countries in Asia, Central and South America, and Africa. More information
