(MINEOLA, N.Y.) – Nassau County Legislators Scott M. Davis (D – Rockville Centre) and Seth I. Koslow (D – Merrick) supported the philanthropic work of Moreano World Medical Mission and its upcoming medical mission to El Salvador during a Thursday, Jan. 18 fundraiser at The Davenport Press in Mineola.

Founded in 1999 by Dr. Edwin Moreano, a New York City plastic surgeon, Moreano World Medical Mission is a not-for-profit organization that brings together volunteer surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and surgical techs to provide free reconstructive surgeries for children and adults with congenital and acquired deformities. The missions typically return to the same areas and facilities in the interest of providing continuity of care. Since its inception, the Misson has provided medical care for more than 2,500 children from Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, and Paraguay. 

“Good health is a blessing, and ready access to quality medical care is something we far too often take for granted,” Legislator Davis said. “The doctors and medical professionals who participate in Moreano World Medical Mission provide a tremendous humanitarian service, and I am truly grateful for the important work that they do for deserving children around the world!”

“Through their generosity and skill, the team of doctors, nurses, and medical professionals who comprise the Moreano World Medical Mission are changing lives and saving lives around the world,” Legislator Koslow said. “It was a pleasure to be with them to support their next medical mission and the furtherance of their selfless service.”
