In 2011, Mission: Restore volunteer surgeons went to Dehradun, India and Kathmandu, Nepal. The goals of the mission were to establish a relationship with an existing medical facility in India, to provide burn care on an ongoing basis to patients who donÕt have other means to seek treatment” and to conduct research on the state of care for burn victims.
More people die of burns in India in a year than die of malaria and AIDS combined. It is a huge problem because people use open fires in their dwellings where children run around while their parents are out trying to make money to support their family. In India and Nepal, the doctors treated a myriad of burn victims.
