BethanyKids is a compassionate Christian mission transforming the lives of African children with surgical conditions and disabilities through pediatric surgery, rehabilitation, public education, spiritual ministry and training health professionals.

Children who might be thought of as worthless by their families or communities can, through surgery, gain independence and a chance to succeed in life.
