Mongolia medical and surgical volunteers examine nearly 1000 patients and conduct nearly 300 surgeries in Ulaanbaatar, Khovd and Olgii

On June 3, 2013, our team of 21 surgeons, doctors and staff returned from a successful medical and surgical teaching mission in Mongolia. In total, our volunteers spent 3 weeks on the ground in 3 different cities providing free medical and surgical care to families who would otherwise continue to be blind or disabled from their conditions. Our doctors worked in six hospitals—including the National Central Hospital, the National Cancer Center, the Third Hospital and the Maternal Child Hospital in Ulaanbaatar; the Regional Diagnostic and Treatment Center in Khovd; and the Hospital in Bayan Olgii—providing educational opportunities for local surgeons and doctors at each site.
