Dr Moses and his team have built a wonderful organization. I have been fortunate to participate in some of their projects. Their missions are multiple and worldwide but have one thing in common--an aim to provide selfless service to humanity.
Dr. Moses and his team of carefully selected volunteers travel thousands of miles various times a year to perform free consultations and charitable surgical treatment to hundreds of patients. They also donate medical and surgical instrumentation to needy hospitals and clinics. What is most admirable is the professional manner in which they conduct their daily activities. This organization commands the utmost respect from the local population at every location they visit and have endless appreciation from the parents and families of the thousands of children they have and continue to heal.
