Who are we

Our prime aim is to train and enable local doctors to deal with burns, congenital problems and trauma.  Our work in Ghana is different from the more familiar "Parachute missions" where doctors fly in to a country for a few weeks, operate on a number of cases and then return home, leaving no legacy or permanent change to the predicament of the lack of local skills.

What we do

We're working to transform reconstructive surgery in West Africa.  Our work in Ghana has allowed a sustainable reconstructive surgical service to be established, staffed and financed by Ghanaians.  They are now training their own surgeons and other medical staff with decreasing help from us which allows ReSurge to extend the project to include other countries in West Africa - notably 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.
