Smiles All Around

We've had a good number of children come our way with Cleft lip and palete. We have been able to help some with our contacts and with some collaborative efforts with other groups similiar to our own. However, there were a good number of older children still waiting for surgery. Vanessa was contacted by our friend, Dr. Tracee and we found out that Operation Smile was going to be spending time in Haiti. The surgeries were to take place in the Hinche area. To our surprise, Smile Train was in the area during the same time and also performing surgeries! Together they helped over 100 men, women and children who have been living with the stigma of Cleft Lip and Palete all their lives. Karen and Bernard sent some before and after photos to share. We are always so thankful when other mission groups share their resources to help all of serve the children of Haiti!
