ABOUT US

Our Mission


G.I.C.A.M. (Groupe International Chirurgiens Amis de la Main) is a Swiss Foundation, based in Lugano, which was founded and has been operating in the surgical field since 1998, particularly in Asia, Africa and South America. 
The mission of G.I.C.A.M. is the organization of humanitarian programs in the field of Hand Surgery, Orthopedics and Reconstructive Microsurgery. The professionals who participate in the missions are orthopedic or plastic surgeons, anesthetists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and nurses who come from all over the world.
Our commitment is to carry out surgical operations and guarantee continuous care at the service of the smallest and poorest, often victims of social ghettoisation, civil wars and famines. For this reason, most interventions are carried out giving priority to women and children. 
Our work, with an immediate and tangible result, gives the greatest possible number of children affected by burns or congenital malformations for which they are not responsible the opportunity to have a chance in life and provides as many adults with the possibility of returning to the normality of their lives. life after accidents or traumatic events.
