In order to truly help local populations, it is paramount to no only operate and teach at a local level but to also create lasting governmental partnerships that will allow this work to continue far into the future.

I truly welcome 2nd Chance Association’s efforts to expand the level of surgical expertise here in Tanzania. Not only are they helping today but are helping to educate East Africa’s future surgeons.
