Patient Stories

Zyad & His Mother

Mansura, Egypt

Zyad, the youngest of four children, was born with a cleft palate. His mother was dedicated to getting her child the medical care he needed despite their shortcomings with support and finances. With the support of MAP international and the medical supplies they provided, Surgical Volunteers International was able to repair her son’s cleft palate.

Patient Stories

Nguyen Phu Dat

Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

As a child, Đạt was involved in a tragic accident that took his father's life, and gave him severe injuries that left him fearing he would have to beg in the streets to make a living. Đạt was barely able to walk from his burn injuries and his hands were so disfigured that he was not able to hold a pencil. He came to us seeking reconstructive surgeries for the burns and scars he'd received in his accident. When asked what he wanted most, his response was to be able to get an education. Dr. Larry Hollier operated on his hand the next day and changed the course of his life forever.
Patient Stories

Jorge the Farmer

Mexia, Guatemala

Jorge is a 36 year-old farmer. Jorge lives with his married sister and her family, since his mother died a few months ago. He was born with a birth defect known as “cleft lip and palate”. Throughout his entire childhood and thus far in his adult life, he has been so ashamed of his appearance and has felt so ugly, that he really only worked and spent time at home with his family.

Christina Seeburger

M.D., Anesthesiologist

"The opportunity to volunteer as a physician with SVI has been life changing for me. It has opened my eyes to other cultures in parts of the world that most people never have the chance to visit, let alone make a significan impact in the lives of individuals in third world countries.

What I have learned from SVI trips is that when we work together to heal and to teach in other countries we bridge the divides between nations and cultures. We are a team with a common goal to improve the lives of those we care for."

"Surgical Volunteers International has provided me with a platform that has allowed me to reach beyond my boundaries. They have afforded me with the opportunity to particpate in volunteer work around the globe which has given me the shance to grow; emotionally, professionally and spirtually.

SVI has allowed me to contribute to a cause that is very dear to my heart, the chance to help improve the quality of life of others. Even the smallest of actions can reap huge rewards. Seeing the smile on children's faces and the gratitude in their parent's eyes has forever made an impact on my life."
