Why We Need Donations
The Surgery Center for FGM is a non-profit operation, meaning we have no intention of making a profit. It also means that we depend on donations to pay our expenses since we do not charge the patients.
What are our expenses? Like all clinics, we must pay the rent on our office space, the utilities like electric, phones and internet. Then there’s insurance and all the drugs, disposable goods, and anesthesia supplies.
We only have one paid employee. The surgeon and all the anesthesiologists and counselors donate their time and professional skills. The other administrative staff and clinical staff are all unpaid volunteers and we are very appreciative for them.
