Children’s Surgery International partners with local hospitals and conducts surgical mission trips to some of the poorest regions of the world while providing pediatric surgical and medical care to children.

As a humanitarian organization, Children’s Surgery International is dependent upon volunteerism and donations from individuals, foundations and corporations. Together with host country partners, they are focused on one goal: improved access to safe and life-changing surgical and medical care for children in need. Volunteers work to build self-sufficiency — bringing hope to children, families and communities around the world, one child at a time.

No 2 The Process

The client requested a complete redesign of their current site into something more modern, colorful, and aesthetically pleasing that would visually communicate their brand and services.

After approval of design mockups, a custom theme Bootstrap 3 theme was created and the content migration from Drupal to WordPress began. Categorizing blog posts into specific countries was a key feature since they actively blog about their experiences during overseas trips. One of the most delicate features of the project was integrating an Authorize.net payment gateway for donations. After a number of flawless sandbox tests, the gateway was switched live and funds began to flow.

“The new site captures our brand exactly and is so easy for us to maintain! The smooth transition between sites was gracefully done and meeting our deadline of launching right before the trip to Liberia was perfect. Thank you so much!”
