CHLA doctors make 7,500-mile house call
Too many young patients, too far away. Instead of bringing the ailing children to Los Angeles, the doctors opted to visit them abroad.
The overseas house call meant a team of plastic surgeons from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) traveled 7,500 miles to Jordan, where they operated on dozens of children with physical deformities too complicated to be treated by doctors at the King Hussein Medical Center in Amman. And the physicians paid for all of it out of their own pockets.
Children of War Foundation's mission is to provide access to donated transformative surgical care to children living with a physical deformity or injuries that cannot be treated in their home country.
