8 Years of service

Hello everyone, It’s been 8 years since we built a floating clinic in the coastal township of Makoko and carried out our first mobile surgery mission. Although we have not been posting regular updates, for which we deeply apologize, the work carried on by our incredible team of medical professionals, who still call themselves by our original name – Hope Floaters.
We are incredibly proud of what they’ve accomplished over the years; to date, they have carried out 2000+ free surgeries in 15+ towns and villages (some of the most difficult locations and conditions) with minimal financial and logistics support.

Between July 5th -August 8th; 7 cities,7 missions,423 surgeries on 399 patients. Impact!

At the inaugural mission in 2010, the team carried out over 200 surgeries. A link to one of the media posts acknowledging the work http://allafrica.com/stories/201011100441.html
