For the fourth year Dr. Jason Frischer of the Colorectal Center at Cincinnati Children's Hospital in Cincinnati OH, will lead a team to the Bugando Medical Center (BMC) in Mwanza, Tanzania. Mending Kids is looking for medical volunteers (with 5+ years of pediatric experience) and non-medical volunteers with a passion for helping children to be a part of a mission delivering complex & life-changing surgeries to children in need. Due to cultural beliefs that ARM (anorectal malformations) are a curse, children are forced to live in the shadows and shame and do not attend school. The opportunity for these children to have their congenital conditions repaired, gives them hope of leading healthy, happier lives and to attend school in the future.
