Instruments of Change

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.

Kids Operating Room

We save children’s lives in the world’s poorest countries.

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.

The art of care.

Children get scared when they need an operation. Very scared. We create incredible spaces that reassure children. Showing them that they are loved, that they will be cared for, and that they are safe now.

Why we exist

The greatest pain is knowing how to save a child's life, but not having the equipment to do it.

As a surgeon, I will do everything I can to save a child’s life. But my training is worthless without the surgical instruments and infrastructure to provide the care that’s needed every single day.
