Hundreds of Interplast medical volunteers generously donate their time every year to help patients around the world. Now, they are raising funds to help even more patients at our year-round site in Dehradun, India. The volunteers are trying to raise an additional $29,000 to ensure that 60 patients will receive surgery in the next two months as part of the Interplast Outreach program in Dehradun, India.
Drs. Yogi and Kush Aeron, father and son, direct our
program in Dehradun. They are committed not only to the surgical problem of
each patient, but also to caring for each patient and the accompanying family
member as a whole. Several
patients who have been abandoned because of their injuries and deformities are
actually living with them and employed at the clinic. Their own living room has been converted to a recovery ward
when their clinic overflows with patients.
Dehradun is truly an exceptional site. It has many patients with disabling burns who need our help, as India is the epicenter of the global burn crisis. It has great local doctors who provide excellent care year-round. And it is place where our volunteer surgical teams provide training, collaborate with the local medical staff and help with the overwhelming number of cases.
To help our devoted volunteers reach their goal to assist their colleagues in Dehradun, please pass the word to your friends and/or donate today. Please be sure to click the “Medical Volunteer Fund Drive” button. Thank you.
