Over the past 20 years Dr. Partington has also taught surgical techniques to doctors in China, Mongolia, the Philippines, Ecuador, Brazil and most recently, Mali, Africa, and Viet Nam. Dr. Partington is honored to serve on the Board of Directors of Healing the Children, an outstanding nonprofit medical organization. Another favorite organization of his is called Nothing But Nets a grassroots campaign to supply mosquito nets to prevent malaria in Africa.

Please know that as a patient of Partington Plastic Surgery Center a portion of all of your services supports these global efforts.

A Crisis in Liberia, Haiti Hoopla, and Standing Strong

Partington_FB_ALE-Sponsorship-1-680x680 Charity WorkDear Marshall,
Many years ago, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Liberia, West Africa. This experience has been the foundation of my passion for our work at HTC as I saw first hand the inequities for women and children in their ability to access healthcare. I knew several young women who died during child birth, young children who were severely malnourished, and people of all ages with severely deformed limbs.

As a non profit which provides access to health care for underserved children around the world, I could not be more proud of the work we do. We live in a country with access to health care at every turn. Even the two doctors who had been in Liberia and were infected by the Ebola virus returned to the US and recovered. The need for quality health care for all is so critically important.

This is why our work is so vital: to address health care disparities as we are able, and give underserved children a chance to grow, to thrive, and to realize hope forthe future. Thank you for your commitment to the children we serve. We are changing the world…one child at a time.

So many ways to kick start the fall and begin your holiday shopping early.

 

HELP US HEAL WITH YOUR GIFT TODAY!

The times are hopeful and yet challenging too. With so many needs here and abroad it is hard to raise the funds needed to support our work. The 530 Mudslide and crises in Liberia and West Africa have all garnered international attention.

This fall, HTC will support five medical teams abroad to Guatemala to bring the gift of hearing to children. The average cost to support one medical team is $12,500 which covers expenses in the field for translators, transportation, training, medical supplies, medical equipment, logistics and project support.

This means we need to raise $62,500 to support these five teams. Help us to stand strong. Your investment will change the lives of nearly 500 children forever!
