WHO IS INTERPLAST?
Interplast has transformed lives for 40 years. The first organization of its kind, Interplast provides free reconstructive plastic surgery for the poor in developing countries. Interplast treats children and adults with clefts, disabling burns and hand injuries. Unlike many organizations, Interplast’s focus is to train and to empower developing world doctors to perform surgeries on their own for generations to come.
Renowned for the highest-quality medical care, Interplast works in partnership with volunteers and overseas medical colleagues to educate and empower local communities so that medical access continues year-round.
Interplast’s vision is a world in which no human being suffers physically or emotionally from a repairable congenital deformity or injury.
WHAT IS A BLOG?
A blog, or weblog, is an online journal that is updated frequently and is easy to maintain and read. The most recent entries are posted at the top, and the most dated at the bottom.
HOW DO I CHECK OUT WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH A SPECIFIC TRIP/INDIVIDUAL?
At the top of the right hand column of the blog that you are on (except the Loja, Ecuador one) will be links to other blogs/individuals. If you are on the main Interplast blog site, the blogs of trips and partners will be in the upper right of the grey column. If you are navigating on a specific trip or partner blog, those who have posted entries will have theirs arranged in an index arranged by name in the grey column. Or you could just read the entire blog to see what everyone is up to.
HOW CAN I HELP?
Well, you can donate to us to keep Interplast accomplishing our mission of providing free reconstructive surgeries for impoverished children around the world. There is a link to the donate page on the blog in the left column.
If you are a anesthesiologist, pediatrician, plastic surgeon, nurse, or you can speak English and either Bangla, Burmese, Chinese (Mandarin), Spanish, or Vietnamese fluently, then you can volunteer on a surgical volunteer trip. Email [email protected] if interested.
What Interplast also needs is for you to tell other people about us, and have them visit our website, read our blogs, or otherwise get them interested in our international humanitarian work.
Email us at [email protected] to tell us what you think.
