The mission of Operation Airway, a global surgery program of Massachusetts Eye and Ear (MEE) in collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital for Children (MGHfC), is to care for children in developing countries who cannot breathe or speak due to airway complications, teach local healthcare providers how to develop their own sustainable airway surgical programs, and conduct research to improve and innovate how this care is provided around the world.

Operation Airway is staffed by a dedicated group of physicians and caregivers from Mass. Eye and Ear and Massachusetts General Hospital for Children. Their work and missions are supported by the generosity of the Benjamin Harry Peiken Foundation and other individuals who contribute to the Operation Airway Fund at Massachusetts Eye and Ear.

All donations are tax-deductible.
