Operation International (formerly International Surgical Mission Support) will be heading to Rakai, Uganda this October 2018
This will be our 5th mission since we started Team Michigan in 2013.
Rakai is a very poor region of Uganda with one very basic hospital serving thousands of local people so the need for healthcare is great!
Please consider donating to help us provide the much needed medical care. We will be taking a team of 22 Drs and Nurses and will be doing a variety of surgeries along with teaching to the local team.
This year, Team Michigan was able to team up with another nonprofit and local hospital to bring Jalil, a 17 year old boy who we first met on our mission to Ghana last year to Michigan. He has just had a life changing operation to remove a large neuroblastoma from his face. He will be attending school on the west side of Michigan for a few months before having another smaller surgery to reconstruct his eyelid then he will head back to his family in Techiman, Ghana.
Dr Mehta also travelled to Rakai, Uganda in April this year and to the Philippines last year with the New York team - please review the video of the mission to the Philippines - again life changing operations were performed.
