Plastic Surgery in the Developing World?


"Why do people in the developing world need plastic surgery?" This is one of the most common questions we are asked when someone is introduced to our organization. Dr. Goran Jovic, our surgical outreach director in Zambia, attempts to answer this question in an insightful one minute video. Click here to watch it. 



Birthday Gifts for ReSurge      

Carl Birthday Wish  

It's not our birthday but we get gifts anyway! ReSurge board member Carl Kravetz will be celebrating his birthday this weekend. "At this point in my life, birthdays are becoming something to dread.... Please make mine actually mean something by helping us do more free surgeries and change more children's lives around the world," he wrote his friends and family. Carl has chosen to use his birthday as a way of raising funds for ReSurge. Using a Facebook application called Causes, Carl set a goal of raising $1,000 for ReSurge as his "birthday wish" and encouraged his entire network to contribute. In a week, Carl has met nearly 50 percent of his goal! Visit his birthday wish page and help him reach 100 percent today. Happy (almost) birthday, Carl, and thank you!

Find out how you can donate your birthday to ReSurge and help change lives by visiting the Causes Birthday Wish Page or contact Liliana at Liliana@resurge.org for more information.

ReSurge International (formerly Interplast) provides free reconstructive surgeries for the poor and builds year-round medical access in underserved areas.
