Vision, Mission and Values
BFIRST’s vision is of a world where reconstructive plastic surgeons and hospital staff in resource poor countries, together with teams including nursing and other related professions, receive training and have the necessary supplies to be able to perform reconstructive surgery and rehabilitate patients.
All our projects are compliant with standards that we have set up to ensure that BFIRST empowers local surgeons.
BFIRST’s mission is to train surgeons working in some of the countries with the fewest resources in the world. Through reconstructive plastic surgery, we aim to release some of the world’s most vulnerable children and adults from a state of poverty caused by a deformity or a disability. One example is that untreated burns frequently result in severe deformity and disfigurement, and a life of destitution and marginalisation.
