THE STORY:

We are asking for donations for our upcoming, inaugural 2017 SpineHope Ethiopia Medical Mission Trip, scheduled for January 18-28, 2017. Partnering with Myungsung Christian Medical Center (MCM), located in the eastern part of Ethiopia’s capital city Addis Ababa, we hope to launch a new global outreach program in January 2017. Ethiopia remains one of the world’s least developed countries and its children suffer from an incredibly high number of spinal deformities and other complex spine conditions. Unfortunately, treatment for these conditions is expensive and Ethiopia neither has the resources nor the specialized medical professionals to provide adequate care. There is a list of well over 500 children in need of spine surgery…and that list continues to grow. We are forming a volunteer team of surgeons, doctors, nurses, physical therapists and others to carry out a spine medical mission trip in January. Our goal for our initial mission trip to Ethiopia is to perform surgery on 8-12 children during our 1.5 week long visit. In addition to the surgeries performed, our volunteer team will see dozens of children in clinic to recommend treatment plans and evaluate options. The team will also provide education and training to local medical staff on innovative techniques, safety protocols and after-care procedures. Our team will change the lives of several Ethiopian children and help the local community! This medical mission trip will require considerable resources to cover an array of expenses for our amazing volunteers and the children we serve, including travel, lodging, medical supplies and other needed supplies for the children. We need your help. Please consider making a donation to this cause. We thank you for your support! For more information visit: http://www.spinehope.org/ethiopia-global-outreach-program/
