One Child a Time - India

One of the places Christian Health Service Corps works is India. Our India child surgery program is headed by Dr. Derick Mendonca a board certified pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Dr. Mendonca is the only fully-qualified craniofacial surgeon in Southern India.

In India, between 27,000 and 33,000 children are born each year with cleft deformities. Many will not live to see there fifth birthday because of malnutrition and recurrent respiratory infections. Those that do survive will face life as an untouchable outcast. With your help many children can be saved, and not forced to live as outcasts for the rest of their lives. 

The average cost for each pediatric plastic surgery is $400 to $600, with some very complicated cranial reconstruction cases costing upward of $4,000 for pediatric ICU care and needed surgical plating.
