A typical mission takes place over ten days with a team of medical professionals and organizers in collaboration with officials from the host country. Our medical volunteers coordinate, and execute the missions with the assistance of logistics volunteers and the in-country counterparts who have requested our assistance. The number of surgeries performed is directly linked to funding, number of volunteers and the capacity of the local hospital.
