Target demographics: provide surgical care to children in need

Direct beneficiaries per year: 501 kids with 560 surgical procedures

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Purchase and assemble snack packs that we deliver to children and families in hospital waiting rooms during our screening clinics. Most families show up to our clinics with absolutely nothing, and may have to wait for long hours to be seen. Snacks and small activities go a very long way to bringing smiles into our waiting rooms.

Geographic areas served: 54 countries including the U.S.

Programs: U.S. Surgeries, International Surgeries, Surgical Missions, and Hometown Mission

Mission:
So many children cannot access the medical treatment they need in their own country. At MKI, we arrange for them to receive donated medical care, whether it''s to bring them to the U.S. for treatment, or arrange for them to be treated in their own country.
Results:
Since 2006, Mending Kids has mended the lives of over 1600 children around the world.
