Children’s Health

Many children live in pain and isolation by not being able to access medical care for surgeries such as clef lip, cataracts and plastic reconstructive as well as dental health care. Without treatment, children often miss school and are often shunned by people living in their village. 

Cleft Lip
Surgeries

Cleft lip surgeries are often treated in the first few months of a child’s life in the Western world.  For children in Africa, it can be years before surgery happens resulting in malnutrition and ostracisation from their community.

Orthopaedic
Surgeries

Eighty percent of the world’s fractures and the majority of club feet occur in developing nations. Without appropriate medical care, those who have these types of defects experience a life of pain and shame.

Good dental health from an early stage means that children are not susceptible to a myriad of other health conditions.  We teach little ones and their families the basics of dental health and provide needed surgeries.

Elisabeth

For baby Elisabeth, her start to life was vastly impacted when she was born with a cleft lip and palate. Her weight started to drop dramatically and her family feared for the life of their daughter.  When her family found Mercy Ships, they thought their prayers had been answered, but there were further struggles to ensure that this little underweight girl was strong enough to undertake the surgery.
