The region is extremely poor and has very little access to health care. Even if they had services available to them, they couldn’t possibly afford to pay for these surgeries themselves. We are very grateful that so many medical professionals are willing to donate their time and give their services to people who have so little. We are also grateful to Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) for providing the funding for this trip. RMHC helps people in the poorest regions of the world, and we are proud to partner with them.
