Instruments of Change
Kids Operating Room works with local surgeons to create operating rooms with children in mind. Complete with child-sized instrument sets and specialist paediatric equipment.
More children die every year from surgically treatable injuries than from malaria, HIV and TB combined. A reality we are working hard to change.
We work in countries where demand is overwhelming. Working directly with local surgeons and their teams to create fully-equipped operating rooms for children. Enabling those teams to use their dedication and talents to treat greater numbers of children, transforming lives one operation at a time.
Number of Operating Rooms - 31
