Questions and answers
What is included in the 250 euro cost of a surgery?
The sum includes information and care for the parents, transportation of the family to the hospital, hospital stay including meals, medical materials and finally the surgery including anesthesia.
Does the operation cost the same in every country?
The 250 euros are a calculated average of the real costs, which vary from project country to project country.
Why are the costs for a surgery so low?
A key principle of our work is the strengthening of local structures. This means that we can work at local prices. In addition, the work on site is organized independently by our partners. The senior surgeons receive a fee and our partner hospitals usually let us use the medical infrastructure at below the usual market price.
When do I get my donation receipt?
If you are a first-time donor, you will receive your donation confirmation immediately after your donation. In order to minimize the administrative effort and thus the costs, the confirmations for further donations are combined and sent out at the beginning of the following year.
Can I choose which child’s surgery I want to sponsor?
When our patients come to the hospital, they usually receive their surgery immediately, their state of health permitting. The treatment is then documented by the team on site and the documentation checked by us. Based on this documentation, we will provide you with retrospective information about “your” child and the treatment you have financed.
Can I provide additional support to a child that I’ve sponsored?
The focus of our work is on medical care for children with cleft lip and palate. The surgery sponsorship therefore also is limited purely to paying for the treatment. In contrast to a classical sponsorship, as a surgery sponsor you finance one treatment of a child. No other support is possible.
Can I sponsor necessary followup treatments for “my” child?
Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that the parents will return for any recommended followup treatments after the initial operation. However, the patient database allows us to follow a child’s treatment. If a followup treatment is performed, we inform the donor who sponsored the first treatment and give them the option to also support this additional treatment.
