Since 2009, Surgical Outreach for the Americas returns to the Dominican Republic to provide basic surgical care for very poor adults and children. Many Dominicans desperately need life changing medical interventions. Most poor Dominicans rely on farming, fishing, mining and other labor intensive jobs to feed and support their families. Injuries and medical conditions dramatically impact the economics of an entire family. These photos and our video provide a glimpse into our 2018 Dominican Republic Mission Trip. We ARE making a difference! Learn how you can help.

Surgical Outreach for the Americas returned to El Salvador in 2018. We provided basic surgical care for adults and children. Most Salvadorans farm or work in manufacturing to earn money for food and necessities. Poverty and a lack of healthcare resources create many challenges, particularly in the rural areas. Injuries and medical conditions, left untreated, dramatically impact the economics of entire families. These photos provide a glimpse of our 2018 El Salvador Mission Trip. We ARE making a difference!
