Mending Kids provides life-changing and life-saving surgical care to children worldwide, including in the United States, while empowering local communities to be medically self-sustaining. We always serve where there is a need and where we are invited to do so, with the intent of making life better for underserved or impoverished children while we seek to empower local doctors to perform these life-saving surgeries independent of Mending Kids missions. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have expanded our mission to include providing critically needed PPE to those on the frontlines.
Mending Kids sends teams of doctors, nurses, and volunteers to developing countries on special missions where many children need live-saving care. We also have a Hometown Mission in Los Angeles to help mend local children. Our missions are possible because of these wonderful volunteers and the donations we receive.
