Donald R. Laub Humanitarian Award
Presented to Dr. Jorge Terrazas
International Medical Partner, Bolivia
Dr. Jorge Terrazas, reconstructive surgeon and founding president of the Bolivian Hand Surgery Association, has been involved with ReSurge International since 2002. For more than 15 years, he has provided reconstructive surgery at the Children's Hospital of the Children's Rehabilitation Institute, the Fundacion Pro Quemado (Burn Foundation), and at the Medical Aid for Children of Latin America.
Now, as current president of the SOS Mano Bolivia Foundation and in partnership with ReSurge, he works to ensure that poor Bolivian patients receive free, year-round surgical treatment and post-operative care. We are so pleased to continue partnering with him to restore hope for patients in Bolivia and to honor his commitment at this year's Transformations Gala.
