Make a Difference

rgbErik and CJH100% of donated money is spent to fly Operation Airway doctors to regional hospitals around the world, where we conduct surgical procedures to restore and rebuild children’s airways so that they can be free of tracheotomy tubes and can breathe, speak and swallow on their own at no cost to the local hospital or patients.

The Mass Eye and Ear staff and other doctors participating in Operation Airway work free of charge when they are on their missions – and charge the local hospitals and patients nothing.

Likewise, the local hospitals charge the Operation Airway surgeons nothing for the use of their surgical facilities in exchange for having the Operation Airway surgeon train the local medical team insofar as it is possible given the time constrants of a mission.
