Our trips

"Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth." - 1 John 3:18

Dr. Tolle and Volunteer Manny Rodriguez render care to a needy child.

Thousands that once before did not have access to healthcare services are now able, for the first time, to enjoy the benefits of adequate medical attention as a result of the Small World Foundation's dedication to bringing relief to the remote areas of many developing nations.

Typically a medical mission includes enough personnel to have two teams operating simultaneously, using general anesthesia, as well as a third "mini-team" for minor surgeries, operating room nurses and technicians, recovery room and intensive care pediatric nurses.

Non-medical volunteers have contributed services such as record keeping, translating and general troubleshooting. Teams work in cooperation with local doctors and medical facilities.

Our multi-specialty team also enables us to broaden our services as the need arises.

Changing lives - one case at a time.

Since 1995, we have conducted many medical missions to Central America, South America and the Middle East. We have also brought many patients from foreign countries to the United States for specialized treatment. Poverty and limited access to medical care are factors that elevate the rate of birth defects, such as cleft lip and palate.

Our plastic surgery specialty has allowed the Small World Foundation to bring hope ans smiles by changing lives and touching the hearts of the least fortunate ones.
