A group of volunteers from Barry University joined Drs. Eric J. Stelnicki of Atlantic Center of Aesthetic & Reconstructive Surgery and his father, Dr. James Stelnicki, on a medical mission trip to Georgetown, Guyana last summer.

The trip was funded in-part by Children’s Health and Rehabilitative Missions (CHARM), a non-profit organization established by Dr. Eric J. Stelnicki. The mission to Guyana, a small South American nation with only one plastic surgeon for its entire population, has an urgent need for pediatric reconstructive surgery and podiatric care.

Together, these medical teams provided in-country medical and nursing education. Through this, the team ultimately hopes to achieve long-term sustainability for providing reconstructive and surgical care on a continual basis in Guyana. The group ended up seeing more than 100 patients and performed around 35 surgeries.

Children's Health and Rehabilitative Missions (CHARM)

Children’s Health and Rehabilitative Missions (CHARM) is a 501(c)3 charity, founded by renown pediatric plastic surgeon, Dr. Eric J. Stelnicki, of Atlantic Center of Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery.
CHARM is dedicated to bringing hope to children around the world by joining medical, nursing, and allied health professionals together to perform life-saving surgical procedures and medical treatment to impoverished children who would otherwise never receive the necessary care.
Currently, CHARM involves plastic and reconstructive surgery, podiatry, and primary care services. The goal is to expand in order to offer many more medical specialties such as general surgery, breast cancer specialists, speech pathology, dentistry, psychiatry, and more.
With increasing funds, CHARM hopes to extend its mission and provide teams to many countries. In addition it is our desire to provide the medical and allied health services to children in Florida who are either uninsured or due to the high cost of insurance and the associated deductibles, are unable to afford care.
