Bring hope and healing, everyday. Become a LifeChanger!

A regular gift of just $35 a month will provide babies like Mame Diarra with the surgery they need to restore their health. That’s less than $2 a day, to give them a chance to live their lives without the social stigma a cleft palate can bring.

As a LifeChanger, you will transform Lives in Sub-Saharan Africa through Surgery, Capacity Building, and Holistic Change.

Thank you, Toni-Maree Carnie 

What it means to be a LifeChanger.

Your regular donations change lives.

A child cured of his club foot. A man whose tumour no longer restricts his ability to provide for his family. A grandmother’s sight restored. A baby who can feed again now her cleft palate is repaired.

Because with your ongoing support, we can perform life-changing surgeries aboard our hospital ships that bring hope to those most vulnerable.

In a world where 5 billion people lack access to safe, affordable surgery, your regular contributions can change lives.
