Summary

Long waiting lists, lack of surgery equipment, tools, and medicines makes it difficult to obtain medical care and surgery for children, mainly from poor families in Sri Lanka at the time they need it. Restore Hope is a very special project to help provide surgery and medicine to children under 14 years having orthopedic deformities and disorders. You can help thousands of children benefit from life changing medical interventions. Restore Hope works with the Lady Ridgeway Hospital Colombo.

Challenge

In Sri Lanka 70% of admissions per annum to this hospital are related to trauma. The Lady Ridgeway Hospital is the ultimate referral center for Pediatric Orthopedics in Sri Lanka, and handles almost all the complicated Pediatric Orthopedic surgeries, free of charge. A new theatre has been built for these expanded Orthopedic Services, however the necessary equipment and implants are still not available to commence surgeries for affected children with complex deformities.

Solution

Restore Hope will help a subspecialty unit of Pediatric Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery to accommodate the full spectrum of pediatric orthopedic conditions. This will enable those children who are from low socio economic families having complicated orthopedic issues, to be addressed, and be cured from their deformities and disorders. These children will be given the best chance in life to lead a normal/improved life.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeons in Sri Lanka to help more children with deformities and disorders in a timely manner with minimal delay. It will result in supporting children to whom appropriate surgical care would either be unattainable or non-existent, to lead a long, healthy, and a productive life. So your support will give these children the opportunity to reach their full potential and be contributing citizens.
