ReSurge is grateful to Dr. Muguti for this opportunity to partner with him to build surgical capacity in Zimbabwe, currently a country of 14 million people and only four plastic surgeons. We are also thankful to our surgical volunteers Drs. Cooney, Redett and Rusy –and to Airlink and South African Airways, which donated the airfares for our visiting educators.
Airlink is a 24/7 disaster and humanitarian response organization that links airlines, like South African Airways, with vetted nonprofits. Because of Airlink’s work and South African Airways donation, ReSurge will be able to send more faculty to train the next generation of reconstructive plastic surgeons.
