Dr. Michael Obeng RESTORES hope and smiles to patients throughout the World.
“Growing up in Ghana, I witnessed disease, illness, and disfigurements that were attributed to supernatural forces such as witchcraft. I also witnessed firsthand the great work of Operation Smile after this organization repaired facial deformities of a neighbor” states Dr. Michael k. Obeng. “This coupled with the pre-mature death of my mother and grandmother due to complications of decubitus ulcer propelled me to seek a career as a physician and a plastic surgeon and ultimately inspired me to start this much needed philanthropic organization to educate and heal those in need”.
Although, there is an overwhelming need for reconstructive surgery in developing countries, these types of surgeries are not readily available because there are no personnel trained to provide the necessary services.
Responding to the plight of these individuals is the focus of RESTORE. As part of their mission is to seek, educate and train local physicians in the techniques necessary to carry on the initial work and to benefit their people in years to come.Over the last five years, Dr. Obeng’s participation with RESTORE has cost him over $100,000, including direct and indirect cost such as lost wages.
Prior to RESTORE Worldwide, Inc. being officially registered with the state of Ohio in 2008, Dr. Obeng visited Ghana on the west coast of Africa for two weeks on two separate occasions in 2008 and 2009. In 2010, RESTORE made its first official mission trip to Ghana to once again RESTORE hope, function and aesthetic form under my direction. The team consisted of Dr. Obeng, a certified nurse anesthetist, an operating room nurse, a recovery nurse, a surgical tech and an educator/helper. Later that year in August, RESTORE partnered with Mission of Love Foundation to provide care to children in Guatemala with cleft lip and palate.
Future missions will include trips to Gabon, Columbia, El Salvador, Burma and Vietnam.
All volunteers who participate in RESTORE’s mission do so at their own will without compensation. But there are still costs to provide medical and surgical supplies, to transport the team and to provide lodging. The support from individuals and corporations in the form of monetary gifts and wills to help RESTORE in accomplishing its missions of helping unfortunate ones with disfiguring deformities and educating local healthcare personnel.
Your philanthropic monetary gift and/or endorsement will make the outreach work possible. As RESTORE continues their mission around the globe and continue to grow, your support will help establish a solid home office with a full time employee who can run the day-to-day activities and coordinate our volunteer efforts as well as coordinate the countries around the globe that we plan to do our mission trips and relieve me from the administrative duties to allow Dr. Obeng to concentrate on delivering quality care to his patients.
