Hand Help Mission Perpetuity Fund

Organized and led by board-certified plastic surgeon and hand surgeon, Dr. Grant Thomson, we are a group of plastic surgery-trained and orthopaedic surgery-trained hand surgeons, residents, and fellows who travel to developing countries performing hand surgery on children and adults with congenital defects and traumatic deformities with limited to no access to proper care.

To treat patients, the parents of whom sometimes travel miles and miles across the country to obtain surgical care for their children. This trip will include a complete team of medical professionals including plastic surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, anesthesiologists, pediatricians, nurses, interpreters, and physical and occupational therapists.

Hand Help has completed 20 international surgery missions and treated over 1400 children , many of whom waited years to see a hand surgeon.

Thanks to generous donors like you, we are able to reach hundreds of children who otherwise would never see a hand surgeon.

As a nonprofit organization, all members of our team are unpaid volunteers. We partner with local hospitals for operating room space and we provide all surgical equipment and supplies including instruments, medical devices, sutures, anesthesia, antibiotics, pain medications, bandages, and post-operative care at no charge to our patients or their families.

We have established the Perpetuity Campaign to keep the mission alive indefinitely. So many children who need our help have no access to hand surgery care. You can help us change that!

Thank you so much for considering making a donation to support this great cause!
