ReSurge's mission is to provide free reconstructive surgery for people in developing countries, and to help improve health care worldwide. The organization's goals are to establish, develop, and maintain host-country medical care and educational programs with the following objectives:
Provide direct patient careâ€”reconstructive surgery and integrated care servicesâ€”to those with no other resources.
Provide educational training and medical interchange.
Assist host-country medical colleagues toward medical independence.
ReSurge maintains no political or religious affiliations. Sensitivity to, and respect for, other cultures as equals pervades the ReSurge philosophy and deeply influences the manner in which we conduct ourselves as ambassadors.

Technologies & Fuels
Clean Cooking Activities
ReSurge and International Medical Corps are partnering to save lives and create a safer world with a 360-approach to burns. It is the first major NGO partnership to address the global crisis of burns with prevention, training, treatment and advocacy.
Burns are a solvable global crisis and cookstoves are a key component of a comprehensive solution. 50% of the burns we see are because of open flames/cooking. Our prevention programs will include education & partnerships with new technologies sectors.
In addition, we are launching ReThink Burns, a campaign to raise awareness of the hidden health crisis of burns.
ReSurge provides 2,200 burn surgeries annually in 13 developing countries. Together with IMC, we will address the burn crisis with prevention, training, treatment and advocacy, beginning with pilot program in Nepal targeting 20,000 underserved people.
We would like to provide expertise, research & advocacy on burns to help make fire-safety and a reduction of burn injuries achievable goals.
