    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Our NGO is called GICAM and for the last 18 years we have been dispatching highly qualified teams of hand surgeons, microsurgeons, theatre nurses and hand therapists to the poorest countries in West and East Africa. We were the only international humanitarian organization to work in Sierra Leone where more than 5000 children were amputated during the civil war in 1999. In 2015, we increased our operations in countryside India, where poverty is beyond limits and there is no access to any type of reconstructive surgery. Children with congenital malformations, deformities due to burns, trauma or violence by adults are our patients. We hope to raise funds for one of our missions in Jamkhed, India, at the Comprehensive Rural Health Project.
