Who We Are

Operation Childlife is an Irish-registered charity with the mission to bring life-saving and life-transforming surgeries to children in less developed countries. In addition to bringing international medical professionals to perform surgeries, we also educate local healthcare professionals to improve their own knowledge and expertise, therefore enhancing their healthcare systems. We provide post-operative follow up care and consultation through online collaboration. We also provide other educational expertise to enhance the knowledge of our international colleagues.
All OCL activity is provided without charge to the recipients, through fund raising and pro bono work.
