About the cause
Mending Kids provides free life-saving surgical care to sick children. For over 10 years, their volunteer medical teams have mended thousands of children and have given them a chance at longer, healthier and happier lives. Most of the surgeries performed correct birth defects including heart defects, club feet and other orthopedic problems, severe scoliosis and significant facial deformities. Mending Kids’ work is accomplished in 63 countries, including the United States, through their core programs: Overseas Surgical Missions, including the Sustainable Teaching; US Hometown Missions; Individual Surgical Care; and Training, Research and Innovation.
