Barco’s Nightingales Foundation

Barco’s Nightingales Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Barco’s Uniforms, producer of medical and other uniforms. Focused on helping children in need while highlighting the role that nurses play in providing medical care, Barco’s Nightingales Foundation has helped provide 1,600 surgeries for children around the world. In 2009, as Barco’s Uniforms celebrated 80 years of business, they generously sponsored 80 surgeries to commemorate this milestone.

Johnson & Johnson

The Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies provides ReSurge with thousands of dollars worth of medical supplies and equipment, which means that more of our precious financial resources can be dedicated to providing life-changing surgeries for children in need. They also have provided funding to 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.

Mobile Instrument

Since 1978, Mobile Instruments has been providing quality surgical equipment maintenance and repair to hospitals nationwide. For several years, Mobile Instruments has been generously repairing and sharpening some of ReSurge's most important surgical instruments free of charge.

Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC)

Since 1998, RMHC has granted more than $5 million to sponsor ReSurge trips and training and support for local doctors to provide year-round care to impoverished children. More than 15,000 children have received life-changing surgery because of RMHC’s partnership with ReSurge.

Smile Train

This international foundation is dedicated to providing free, safe, high-quality surgery for the repair of cleft lip and palate deformities of children in developing countries. They provide funding for care in 87 different countries. Smile Train often works through other organizations that actually manage the provision of surgical procedures. ReSurge has been one of Smile Train's partners since their formation in 1999.

Syde Hurdus Charitable Foundation

Year after year, the Syde Hurdus Charitable Foundation helps support lifechanging surgeries, speech therapy, medical education and empowerment programs, helping to create year-round access to medical care in developing countries. The New York-based Syde Hurdus Charitable Foundation was created from the estate of Ms. Syde Hurdus, a well-known clothing designer who cared deeply for the welfare of children around the world.

Other Long-term Partners

ReSurge also would like to give special recognition to our long-term partners for their two decades of dedication and commitment to ReSurge’s mission, volunteers and outreach centers. Their ongoing support has helped ReSurge grow its work and expand into new sites around the world. On our list of longterm partners, ReSurge would especially like to acknowledge the following foundations: the Tosa Foundation, Grousbeck Family Foundation, The May & Stanley Smith Charitable Trust and the T & T Family Foundation.
