According to (NIH) the prevalence of umbilical hernia in Nigerian children is 12.8 per 1,000 while the prevalence of inguinal hernia in Nigerian children is 11.1 per 1,000 and most of these children lack medical help due to limited resources and access to medical health care.

Our Mission

We Provide free hernia surgeries to children in need, giving them a chance at a healthier and pain-free life.

No child should endure the debilitating effects of hernias due to financial constraints.


The story of Uchechukwu

When I noticed painful swelling in his stomach, my son was just 1 year old. I was hopeless with no money for the operation. GEANCO restored my hope by paying for my baby’s operation.

The story of Christiana

My baby had hernia for over 3 years because I could not afford the surgery. God answered my prayer through GEANCO Foundation. My Son got free surgery and is now healthy

About Us

Every child deserves the chance to play, learn, grow up healthy, maximize their potential, and be the best versions of themselves. This is the dream of every child, but for a good number of underserved children, certain medical conditions seem to cut this dream abruptly.

We believe that every child deserves access to quality healthcare, regardless of their background or financial situation; our mission is to improve their health and well-being by providing free surgeries to those who need them most but cannot afford them.

Our child-focused intervention program is made possible through the generous support of our donors and partners, including our team of healthcare professionals who volunteer their time and expertise. We work closely with local hospitals and clinics to identify children who require these surgeries and provide them with the necessary treatment, free of charge.

We believe that it is important for our partners to see accurate results of their contributions and to understand the impact that their donations have on the lives of children and their families, hence our commitment to transparency and accountability. Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of children and help to build a healthier, more equitable world.
