​​​​This section features reports of travel scholarship recipients of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons International Committee. We have asked our scholarship recipients to list their greatest needs in the hope that our readers will help them either by volunteering their time and skill, hosting them on future trips to North America, or perhaps by donating supplies to help them care for their patients. Click on the link below to find out how you can make a tax-deductible contribution to help a fellow colon and rectal surgeon in an area of need. We will focus on one shipment at a time beginning with Tanzania.
