Project Perfect World's mission is to improve the health of the world's children through medical intervention, mentoring with local medical colleagues and infrastructure development. Since 1995, Project Perfect World has funded at least two trips a year trips to perform maxillofacial, dental, and orthopedic surgery on children who would not otherwise be able to receive the care they need. This amazing organization works with a highly skilled group of healthcare volunteers who donate their time and talents to serving these children.
Our selected nurses have both previously traveled abroad on similar missions.
