Mending Kids

About This Organization

Mending Kids provides life-changing surgical care to children worldwide. Over the years, thousands of children have received corrective, transformational surgeries that have given them a chance at longer, healthier and happier lives. Most of the surgeries we perform are to correct congenital heart defects, orthopedic abnormalities, severe scoliosis, and significant cranial facial deformities. We also provide quality, personal training to local surgeons in developing countries who want to care for their own children, and we perform surgeries on American children through our Hometown Mission program. In 2014 we deployed 12 teams to 10 different countries and completed 550+ surgeries. In 2015 we hope to break that record. Without contributions from our caring donors, we could not give children the world-class surgical care they deserve.

    Hi, My son is 2.5 years old and has Microtia in his right ear. He can only hear on this left side. I have dedicated my life to raise funds to repair his hearing and the appearance of his ear. However it may take me 20 years to raise enough for him to go to California to have the medpor surgery. Will you be able to assist my son, or provide us with information that will be useful in our situation. All I want is for him to have a normal life.

    Hi from Khaidyn 5 yrs from Collingwood Park Australia, we are currently fundraising for his own right side microtia and atresia reconstructoin surgery with Dr. Reinish and Dr. Roberson. Khaidyn wants to donate his pocket money, because he knows its very hard work when people don't give. What your organisation is doing is nothing short of AWESOME <3 Thank you for showing there is hope :) We hope that somedaythere will be an organisation like this one in australia and not just for microtia but for all rare conditions and for the families who might like us also struggle to find support. Best wishes will donate more as we can :)
