The majority of our funding comes from individual contributions given to us by people like you.
The economic conditions in most of the countries we work in require that we donate the SIGN Implants to the hospitals. However, about 1/3 of our funds come from cost reimbursement programs that we have in a few of the government hospitals, with other non-profit organizations and with implant distributors in Vietnam, Indonesia, Iran and Guatemala. We do not profit from these sales. Rather, the cost reimbursement program enables us to start new programs in other areas of great need.
Ninety-Five percent of our budget goes directly to supply the SIGN Surgeons with the implants and training needed to care for their patients.
