Our Mission

There are millions of children in the world who are suffering and dying from medical problems that can be solved through miracle surgeries. These surgeries are very quick and inexpensive. The only reason these children haven’t received them is because they are poor. WonderWork was created to provide free surgeries for these children.

  • 15 million severely burned children are waiting for surgery.
  • 2 million children with clubfoot are waiting for surgery.
  • 1 million blind children are waiting for surgery.

The way we do it is unique


We empower local surgeons in developing countries.

Instead of sending doctors on 2-week missions, WonderWork empowers local surgeons through free training, equipment and crucial financial support. This is the smartest way to deliver surgeries in developing countries.

We set high standards for safety and quality.

The safety of our patients is our #1 priority. Our safety and quality protocols ensure our patients receive the best care possible. We audit results and provide free training for all of our partners.

We help children no one else will help.

We work in the poorest countries in the world. We tackle problems no one else will touch. We go to places other charities won’t go. We help children who have been waiting for years for the miracle surgery that can save them.
