2022 REX FOUNDATION GRANTEE
Mending Kids gives sick children life-saving surgical care while advancing education and training towards medical sufficiency in their communities.
Since 2005, they have mended thousands of children in over 66 countries, including the U.S.
MK’s volunteer surgical teams travel to developing countries on specialized missions to mend children in need of life-saving surgeries, and to train local surgical staff to create sustainable programs. Children with complex cases are flown to the United States, or to partner hospitals in India, Israel, and the other countries that have met MK’s stringent requirements for specialty care.
Mending Kids also presents global online symposiums to train hundreds of medical providers at a time through an exchange of knowledge they may not have access to, and works with smart glass technology to assist virtually in surgery.
