ONE WORLD SURGERY – HISTORY

Summit surgeon Peter Daly, M.D. and his wife, LuLu, started the Holy Family Surgery Center (HFSC) in 2009, six years after a 2003 volunteer trip to Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos, an orphanage in the mountainous region outside Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The organization was very successful and in 2017, HFSC and SCA (Surgical Care Affiliates) Medical Missions combined to create One World Surgery to better meet the growing medical and surgical needs in underserved communities –  embracing the concept of service and the transformation of lives.

Carlos and Sindi's Story

I have no words to express my gratitude. They also helped with transportation, lodging and other expenses we had. Amazing.
After a devastating motorcycle accident, Sindi and her husband Carlos were bedridden for 14 months. During that time, Sindi’s mother cared for the couple and their two children. When a friend told the couple about the Holy Family Surgery Center (HFSC), they were filled with hope that they would soon be cured. At her recent follow-up consultation, Sindi walked proudly without a limp and shared that she can now support her family by selling fresh juice. Carlos arrived to HFSC with a severely infected leg from eight unsuccessful surgeries done at the local hospital. Our volunteers and HFSC team are working hard to restore him to full health.
