Surgical Relief Teams © (SRT) was an initiative established to Train, Equip, Connect and Deploy highly skilled plastic and reconstructive surgeons for short-term disaster relief medical missions. As a global platform for surgical care, SRT placed teams on the ground within the first week of a mass casualty incident.
From October 2013 through January 2017, this program deployed the following relief teams:
- Missions to Amman, Jordan helped local surgeons treat injured Syrian refugees:
- 18 trips, 263 surgeries, 450 patient evaluations.
- Total International Disaster Relief Missions to Jordan, Turkey, and Lebanon:
- 25 trips, 438 surgeries, 907 patient evaluations
To help explain this program, we invite you to watch the video that was produced by our partners at Relief International.
We applaud all those members who actively participated in this vital program and are working to update and revitalize our humanitarian mission efforts.
