Years of carrying out Surgical Aid Missions

Welcome to Surgical Aid Foundation

We understand that surgery can be expensive and beyond the means of the average person. We also understand how it feels to be unable to afford the cost of the surgeries that would give a second chance at life. Our vision is to continuously support hospitals that satisfy our stringent standards to carry out annual Surgical Aid Missions with various themes for each year. We understand that life is easier when there is a shoulder to share your burdens, and we are here to offer that shoulder.

Minimal Access Surgery

SAF understands that endoscopic Minimal Access Surgeries could be expensive and beyond the means of an average income earner. SAF also realizes that everyone needs another opportunity to live a productive life and not pass away as a result of inaccessibility to medical facilities or exorbitant cost of such surgery. We are conscious that life is easier with loved ones around us. SAF is willing to take that chance with you.

Changing the Status-quo

There are very high-standard medical facilities with the latest technology available in Nigeria at an affordable cost with experts trained in the best facilities in the world. Unfortunately, many patients are unaware of these facilities, or cannot afford the surgery fees in spite of these facts. A major drawback of travelling abroad for surgical treatment is the difficulty to follow up with their surgeons, especially after returning to the home country.

In the worst cases, the surgeries are unsuccessful and there is no way the doctors can be held accountable for their actions. This is because they are not subject to our laws and not much can be done to get justice here at home. We understand that finding the best facility for certain surgical procedures can be a stressful process. Worse still, doctors and hospitals are unable to advertise based on existing laws. But you are not alone in this process, we are here for you.

What our patients say about us

“I needed money for a major surgery and I was looking to get a loan from the bank, but I was not eligible for a loan. I heard of Surgical Aid Foundation from a friend and I was able to apply online under their Surgical Assistance program. It was a big relief to hear that they were willing to offset the cost of my surgery. The surgery went very smooth without a hiccup thanks to the quality of care I received from their partner hospital. I have many friends who had the same issue as myself and I know the pain they are experiencing after their surgery but that has not been my case. I am so thankful to Surgical Aid Foundation”

“In all of my 62 years, I have never seen a more patient-friendly hospital. I was impressed by the partner hospital SAF linked me to. Throughout my stay, hospital and SAF staff made regular contact with me to offer emotional support. Even the Medical Director would come in to sit and talk with me. I have been to other hospitals within and outside my State (Cross River), I’ve never seen a friendlier service. In fact, I have been recommending people to the Foundation for surgical conditions because of how they handled everything professionally and humanely. Not to mention the surgery I went in for, it was expertly done and I have since bounced back to good health. They are simply the best”
Mr J
Patient
“Without the help of Surgical Aid foundation, I don’t know where I will be today. I was admitted to the hospital for a prostate condition which cost myself and my family a lot of money. After some days of treatment, the surgeon informed me that I needed surgery. I and my wife had spent all we had on the treatment and we were unsure if we could afford the surgery. The surgeon referred us to Surgical Aid Foundation (SAF) for surgical assistance. SAF advocated for us to our friends, families and other contacts to raise money for the surgery. Within a month, we were able to raise 75% of the surgical cost and SAF subsidized the balance. I am back to good health now and I’m so thankful that an organisation like Surgical Aid Foundation exist.”
Mr G
Patient
I want to thank Surgical Aid Foundation for assisting with part of my surgery fee. I was unable to raise the total cost of surgery and I was glad SAF stepped in to assist me. I discovered I had needed surgery earlier this year after a severe right-sided lower abdominal pain started and I was admitted to the hospital. I had an abdominal scan that revealed a stone in my right kidney. Being a doctor, I understand that minimal access surgery had numerous advantages to open surgery but it isn’t available at the government hospital. With the help of SAF, I was able to find a surgeon high-skilled in minimal access surgery and they also supported with their surgical assistance program. I am so thankful
