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 Mohamed Mansuray in Freetown and Foday Tarawalie in Makeni.

We are a unique organization in that we use 100% of of the funds donated here for the medical and surgical care of Sierra Leonean children and adult patients. No part of these funds go for administrative costs.
In Sierra Leone, simple surgeries cost slightly over $100. No donation is too small. Every dollar counts.
