Dr. Michael K Obeng, R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Worldwide Inc. to conduct free reconstructive surgeries in Ghana this October

Published

RESTORE 5
Barely three months after performing free reconstructive surgeries in Yaounde Cameroon, R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Worldwide Inc., led by renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Michael K. Obeng, is headed to Accra, Ghana.

The team of selfless and dedicated health officials is expected to arrive in Accra on Saturday, October 8.

Screening of patients will take place on Sunday, October 9, with surgeries to begin Monday, October 10 through to Friday, October 15.

The mission will be the team’s third medical mission this year after successful programs in Gambia and Cameroon early in the year.

This will be the 15th year that the R.E.S.T.O.R.E. team has embarked on such a humanitarian mission. The team of selfless volunteers has visited and performed reconstructive surgeries in Gabon, Ghana, Guatemala, Laos, Mexico, Nigeria, Senegal, and Vietnam.

As done over the years, the R.E.S.T.O.R.E. team will not only perform surgeries but also train a good number of local healthcare professionals as well as exchange ideas.

To date, R.E.S.T.O.R.E. has performed over 1,600 surgeries free of charge in three different continents, the monetary value exceeding $80 Million USD.

About R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Worldwide Inc.; The Foundation for Reconstructive Surgery

R.E.S.T.O.R.E. is an acronym that stands for Restoring Emotional Stability Through Outstanding Reconstructive Efforts. It is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit medical service organisation that provides free reconstructive surgery and related medical services to children and adults with disfiguring deformities from birth, accidents and diseases involving not only the head and neck region, but also the trunk, breasts, extremities, and genitalia. It was founded in 2007 by Dr. Michael K. Obeng.

As part of its mission, R.E.S.T.O.R.E. also educates and trains local medical professionals on the latest techniques and safety measures in plastic and reconstructive surgery, effecting change long after the R.E.S.T.O.R.E. team leaves these communities.

R.E.S.T.O.R.E. AT 15

Dr. Michael K. Obeng, MD, FACS – It is with great pleasure to announce that RESTORE Worldwide, Inc.; the Foundation for Reconstructive Surgery reaches its 15th anniversary this year!

I, as the founder, look back at these years with nostalgic fondness and am proud of the continuous expansion and growth, all made possible with the assistance of a strong donor base that helped us reach this milestone.

Since its inception in 2007, RESTORE and its dedicated group of noble volunteers completed missions in 11 different countries on three continents. The team has performed over 1500 surgeries all free of charge, with a great humanitarian aim to change people’s lives, and were not afraid to tackle complex reconstruction cases. The monetary value of surgeries performed has exceeded well over USD 80 million.  Moreover, a countless number of patients of all ages have indirectly benefited from the foundation’s work through non-surgical management and the training of local doctors.

Now, as RESTORE races towards its fifteenth anniversary, I am not only keen on replicating the same success, but also envision reaching new horizons with a goal of raising USD 2.5 million in a year to make an even greater impact. It is no secret that we have strong demand and constant requests for RESTORE missions in new regions and countries, all unfulfilled because of the heavy weight of logistical costs associated with providing medical and surgical supplies and transporting the team. While some donors provide value by donating time and volunteering, the non-profit needs donors to provide crucial financial support.

This year in June, we completed a mission to Cameroon and have upcoming trips that include Ghana in October and Senegal in December. If we reach our fundraising goal on this occasion, I envision RESTORE’s expansion to Central and South America, as well as Southeast Asia, and growing to become one of the leading non-profit, charity organizations across the globe.

Any support, great or small, helps RESTORE to get closer to its very special goal to change lives, give hope and make an impact.

As I deliver my deepest gratitude towards your generosity, I hope you will inspire others to make the same move, by supporting our noble cause.
