80% contribution from Hong Kong individual donors goes towards the programme development cost, programme countries include: China, Southeast Asia, India, Africa…etc. The remaining 20% goes towards operation and fundraising expenses.
Of the development cost, 80% of raised funds goes towards the cost of the surgeries including surgical kits and supplies, medical staff and anesthesia. The remaining 20% goes towards local community support, indirect cost such as transportation, post-surgical care, follow-up visits, and cloud-based patient medical records. These two programme components enable us to provide the best surgery care to the patients.
