Medical Mission: Cambodia

 We were part of an international team from Operation Smile that helped to open a permanent "Smile Center" in Phnom Penh. 
We performed surgery on 109 patients in 4 1/2 days of surgery. 
It was a great trip!

Medical Missions: Ghana

 Kim , Thank you so much for your contribution to our medical mission to Techiman Ghana. It was an amazing trip with an amazing group of people from the International Surgical Mission Support (ISMS) team from New York. While there we were able to perform the first laparoscopic vaginal hysterectomy in the history of Ghana. We were also able to teach the surgeons there how to perform this procedure and left with them the equipment to do this as well as other laparoscopic procedures. Meeting and working with the medical staff at the Holy Family Hospital in Techiman was a wonderful experience. By the end of our stay we felt as if we were leaving family. You can see the smiles on the nurses in the photos as they sport their Kimkaps. Thanks again for your donation. Thanks also to the nurses at Midtown Surgery Center in Charlotte NC for donating their old Kimkaps for me to take and hand out in Techiman as well.

Medical Mission: Ecuador

 On behalf of all of us at Blanca's House, I would like to thank you for supplying us with a great selection of caps that became invaluable to our mission to the hospital in Babahoyo, Ecuador. The hospital staff initially greeted us with a rather cold reception. All attempts to have the staff warm up to us and welcome us were fruitless.  The second day of our mission I broke out the KimKaps and began to distribute them to the OR staff. From then on, we were treated like royalty. Thank you again for your generosity.

Medical Mission: Philippines


 Last month our organization, Mission:BRAIN (Bridging Resources and Advancing International Neurosurgery) went to the Manila, Philippines for our first surgical mission there and our team wore your beautiful caps.  We have been doing surgical missions to Guadalajara, Mexico for the last three years and this year was our first foray to the Philippines.  The mission of our group is two pronged: provide advanced neurosurgical care and help train and educate and have an exchange of ideas among neurosurgical teams in underdeveloped areas.
I just want to let you know about us and how your caps have made the trip extra special and colorful.  Before we left the Philippine General Hospital, the staff there loved your hats so much that we ended up giving them away to them, with one hat worn by Dr. Michael Lawton, our neurosurgeon, being auctioned off and given as a price to their hardest working resident.  The hats have been such a cheerful addition to the mission that we've decided to make it a permanent part of our trips.  As you can see in the attached photos we've added our own little touch to the hats. 
Personally, I've been wearing your caps all these years at work and now I'm so happy that they will be part of something that is very dear to my heart.
All the best,
April

Medical Mission: Guatemala


I would just like to send a personal thank you on behalf of myself and the Cape Breton International Surgical Volunteer team, who recently went to Guatemala for a mission. Without your support and generosity, the trip wouldn't have been so successful.  We look forward to our next mission next February 2015, and we hope that you will consider supporting our team again the second time around!
Thanks  again for our support and kindness
Tiffany, RN and the Cape Breton International Surgical Volunteer Team
