OUR IMPACT


The women and children we care for are the forgotten ones. The ones with illnesses so shameful that few people think they can be helped. In their own words, they tell us how empowered they are after surgery to resume normal life with dignity and to reach their full potential while contributing to their families and communities. Their strength is our inspiration. Also inspiring are the local health providers with whom we work. Our shared commitment to the most under-privileged members of society reaffirms our optimism that together we can make a lasting impact.
