Who are we

Our prime aim is to establish a reconstructive surgery and burns service in West Africa, through the training and empowerment of local doctors, anaesthetists, nurses and physiotherapists.  Our legacy is permanent self-sustaining change to the predicament of the lack of local skills.

What we do

Reconstructive surgery has an immense role to play in Africa. There are a huge number of people, young and old, suffering from deformity and disability caused by birth defects, accidents, burns and disease. Without the aid of reconstructive surgery, many of them are often cast out of their communities with little hope of future employment, independence or quality of life.  Our work in Ghana has allowed a sustainable reconstructive surgical and burns service to be established - now a successful training hub for the region and beyond.  Using this model we are focusing our efforts on building a similar service in Sierra Leone.

featured-video2We need your help!

Reconstructive Surgery rebuilds bodies damaged by fire, accidents, cancers, war and birth defects.

We don't provide temporary services from visiting surgeons that make a short-term difference. ReSurge Africa has the long term aim of training and empowering local medical staff. These Surgeons, Anaesthetists, Nurses and Therapists have attained levels of skill that have lead to the creation of a permanent and self sustaining reconstructive surgery service in Ghana.
