INTERNATIONAL PLASTIC SURGERY FOR DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
The INTERPLAST surgical teams are experienced plastic surgeons, anaesthetists
and surgical nurses making their holidays available for operations completely free of charge in developing countries.
Medicine and surgical instruments brought by the doctors as well as the charges of transport and accommodation of the team are funded by donations.
WE LEND OUR AID TO THE POOREST IN THE WORLD
All over the world, people suffer from diseases leaving bad scars and
disfigurement. Accidents involving burns or animal bites are also very common. Children in particular suffer from this and often have to struggle with it their whole lives.
In many crisis areas, people become victims of violent conflicts. Especially for children, these assaults are traumatizing and without any appropriate treatment, normal life is impossible.
Doctors from INTERPLAST go to crisis areas free of charge in their free time to operate and treat people in need. In this way, children can be helped to live a life of dignity that would otherwise be denied to them.
Without your support we wouldn’t be able to carry out our missions.
WO WIR TÄTIG SIND / WAREN
INTERPLAST Switzerland has worked in the following areas so far:
Palestine (Gaza Strip) and Jenin
Clinic Centre Medico-Chirurgical Sédogo from 14.10.2023 to 04.11.2023.
Interplast Switzerland's major commitment over a total of three weeks with three different teams: an organizational tour de force and an absolute surgical success.
With three different focal points - burn, breast and hand surgery - it was possible to maintain efficient surgical operations throughout the entire period.
In cooperation with the local staff, we were able to provide numerous patients with the best possible care before, during and after the operations and help them to regain a better quality of life and functionality through our operations.
St. Francis Hospital Mutolere, Kisoro, Uganda from 22.06.2023 to 30.06.2023.
The first Interplast Switzerland mission in Kisoro, Uganda was a complete success. After initial contact and exploration last year, a trial deployment in a new area was successfully completed.
We are looking forward to further cooperation in order to improve the quality of life of patients in this area with our interventions in the future.
