STUDIO CITY ( — Marchelle Sellers, Executive Director of Mending Kids International, visited the KCAL9 studios Friday to talk about MKI’s Hometown Mission event.

For nearly 30 years, thousands of children have received free, corrective and transformational surgeries that have given them another chance at a longer, healthier life. MKI hosts different events throughout the year to raise money to pay for these surgeries.

Since 2006, Mending Kids has helped over 700 kids with life-changing and lifesaving surgeries.
