ReSurge’s mission is to provide free reconstructive surgery for people in
developing countries, and to help improve health care worldwide. The organization’s
goals are to establish, develop, and maintain host-country medical
care and educational programs with the following objectives:
Provide direct patient care—reconstructive surgery and integrated care services—to those with no other resources.
Provide educational training and medical interchange.
Assist host-country medical colleagues toward medical independence.
ReSurge maintains no political or religious affiliations. Sensitivity to, and
respect for, other cultures as equals pervades the ReSurge philosophy
and deeply influences the manner in which we conduct ourselves as
ReSurge envisions a world in which no human being suffers physically or
emotionally from a repairable congenital deformity or injury. To reach that
vision, ReSurge partners with volunteers and overseas medical colleagues to
educate and empower local communities so that medical access is available
year-round—now and for generations to come.
