In the words of Linda Esposto, Executive Director
Surgicorps trips are all unique, yet they all have one thing in common-witnessing the love of parents for their children in all lands, and their willingness to sacrifice for them.
Ethiopia was no different. Mothers who brought their malnourished children to us at the CURE hospital in Addis Ababa in hope of a palate repair to change their lives. Mothers who were unable to produce enough breast milk to feed their infants and had no funds to purchase goat milk as supplement.
Their tears brought us to tears. In some cases, all we could offer were hugs of support.
It is overwhelming. It is at times so sad.
