Millions of children in Africa don’t get the surgery they need. BethanyKids wants to change that.
How? By transforming the lives of African children with surgical conditions and disabilities through paediatric surgery, rehabilitation, public education, spiritual ministry, and training health professionals.
Medical care, especially surgery, is expensive. One of BethanyKids’ key values is that no child should be denied surgery because of lack of funds. BethanyKids offers highly subsidized care for children whose families would otherwise not be able to afford the life-saving and life-transforming surgical care we provide.
Where? In 2017 we performed 2,979 surgical procedures and treated more than 10,200 outpatient children in 5 African countries: Kenya, Madagascar, Ethiopia, Uganda, and Sierra Leone. In 2018 we expanded our ministry to Cameroon.
