John Woods, Founder
With over two decades of experience in modern medicine, specializing in Orthopedic Spine surgery as a First Assist, John Woods has worked with surgeons of the highest caliber in several countries spanning three continents. In addition to assisting in over 11,000 surgeries, John has helped advance his field by pioneering new technology, including a spinal implant, as well as a device used in minimally invasive spine surgery, both patent pending.
After accepting an invitation, on a whim, to be a part of a medical mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2011, life as he knew it would change forever. After seeing the difficulties there first hand, John switched from “medical professional” to “humanitarian”, dedicating his life to the people of the DRC. Today, he lives in DR Congo full-time, working along-side Congolese medical professionals, school leaders and chiefs of villages helping to empower them with education, supplies, and financial support in hopes of regaining a sustainable future in a nation that has been shattered by war and deep rooted corruption.
