About This Campaign
Under the leadership of CHLA pediatric surgeon, Dr. Cathy Shin, our all-female Mending Kids volunteer surgical team will be returning to St-Damien Hospital for the fourth consecutive year to provide on-going training and mentoring to the hard working local OR staff. Our mission will provide life-changing and life-saving surgeries to more than 60 children in one short week and play a considerable role in relieving some of the backlog of general pediatric surgery cases that accumulate between visits. With the challenges Haitian children face in having access to surgical care, something as simple as having a hernia repaired becomes a life-saving surgery in this part of the world. We are committed to providing Hope Love and Mending this April 18 to the 25th.
