War Surgery

Saving lives in war zones

War Surgery

Every day, our highly trained surgical teams save lives in the most dangerous war zones.

In war-torn countries like Syria, South Sudan, Yemen and Nigeria, health-care services are often among the first to suffer: hospitals are destroyed; staff are injured or killed; and fuel, water and medical supplies can be cut off at any time.

Our mobile surgical teams can go wherever they're needed most at a moment's notice, filling the gap where medical facilities have been damaged or simply don't exist. They bring hope in desperate situations.
