Not everybody has the same privilege of having basic surgery care available.
Actually, 2 out of 3 people in the world, so approximately 5 billion people, do not have access to basic surgical care.
This upcoming announcement reflects all that we have learned, all that we have achieved together over the past four decades, and also all that we will achieve in the future. Because we believe that every human being has the right to essential medical and surgical care. We believe that together with thousands of volunteers, with African hospitals and health professionals, and with your support, we can help the countries we serve. We will be able to treat twice as many women, men and children in the future. And we will be able, through training and enhanced mentoring, to support the development of access to care in Africa.
