This site was created on the Open Source Drupal platform, but contains quite a bit of custom functionality which was built into the site from day one. The heart of this site is a 3-part directory for Pediatric Surgeons and those in Resource Poor Areas needing their assistance:
- Doctors or Organizations list trip they taking in the future that they want more participants or resources for
- Organizations, Hospital, and Clinics Resource-Poor-Countries can place request for training, planned trips, etc.
- Volunteers can list when they are available, where they are interested in traveling to, if available in an emergency, and much more.
The site has many sorting options and also the database is regularly synchronized with the Client’s Vertical Response account to send out emails. Using Google Translate the site now can be read in over ten different languages including English, Spanish, French, Mandarin, and Arabic.
