In 2003 I founded Africa Surgery, a non-profit organization providing health care and surgical services to needy people in Sierra Leone.
For about 5 months a year I live there working with international and local medical programs and facilities that provide diagnoses and treatment on a wide range of issues.
When not there, I coordinate activities from Morristown, NJ, with help from some in-country assistants, including Abu Benjamin Tarawallie in Freetown and Foday Tarawalie in Makeni.

We are a unique charity. Virtually 100% of our funds are spent for the medical and surgical care of Sierra Leonean children and adult patients. Less than 1% of our revenue covers our extremely low administrative costs.
In Sierra Leone, simple surgeries cost slightly over $100. No donation is too small. Every dollar counts.
Africa Surgery, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit. Your donations are tax-deductible in the United States.
