Firestone-Liberia Hosts Eighth Children’s Surgery International Mission

first_img“Since 2010, the collaboration has resulted in surgeries for more than 800 children and training for hundreds of medical professionals from Liberia and surrounding countries.”The Firestone Medical Center in Duside has begun screening in preparation for an up-coming mission from Children’s Surgery International (CSI) to provide free surgeries to Liberian children in order to correct craniofacial, urologic, and other pediatric medical conditions, a press release has said.Craniofacial is a medical term that relates to the bones of the skull and face. It’s abnormalities are birth defects of the face or head, including cleft lip and palate which are among the most common of all birth defects; while urologic diseases or conditions include urinary tract infections, kidney stones, bladder control problems, and prostate problems, among others. Some urologic conditions last only a short time, while others are long-lasting.According to the release, the annual partnership between CSI and Firestone-Liberia began in 2010, and to date the collaboration has resulted in surgeries for more than 800 children and training for hundreds of medical professionals from Liberia and surrounding countries.The CSI team will consist of world-class surgeons, doctors, nurses and medical and non-medical volunteers, and will also provide specialist training to doctors and healthcare staff working at the Firestone Medical Center and other medical facilities in the country.The program, the release said, is a part of Bridgestone’s global corporate social responsibility (CSR) and commitment under the theme, “Our Way to Serve,” which is aligned with the company’s long-standing corporate mission, “Serving Society with Superior Quality,” based on the philosophy articulated by “our founder, Shōjirō Ishibashi, and which reinforces our promise to use our strengths as a company to improve the way people move, live, work and play.”“We are so proud to once again partner with CSI to provide lifesaving and life changing surgeries to the children of Liberia,” said Don Darden, vice president of Administration for Firestone-Liberia, adding, “The impact these surgeries have on children, families and people of Liberia is simply immeasurable.”Pediatric medical conditions can cause stigmatization and serious distress, to the point where children affected often do not attend school or socialize in their communities.As such, the CSI mission at Firestone offers treatment to children from birth up to the age of 20 years; cleft lips, cleft palates, hernias and urological issues are the most common conditions corrected during the mission.The company has a long history of significant investment in healthcare, providing free healthcare to approximately 5,000 patients/visitors for its employees and their dependents every month.The Firestone Medical Center in Duside is one of the best referral hospitals in the country, and works closely with the government to administer various vaccinations and other disease control initiatives.CSI is a volunteer not-for-profit organization based in the United States of America, providing free surgical services and professional training to communities in need around the world.“Our vision is a world where communities have access to skills, tools and knowledge that provide essential and life-changing surgical and medical care to children,” said Megan Sparks, executive director of CSI, noting, “We are deeply grateful to our long-time partner, Firestone-Liberia, for the opportunity to work together toward realizing that vision in the country.”According to the release, preliminary screening for this year’s mission has begun and will run every Tuesday and Thursday until December 27. The CSI Mission will take place from January 13-18, 2019, at the Firestone Medical Center at Duside.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
