Thank you for supporting our September 2021 outreach cleft program in Ecuador.
We were thrilled to see David Josue (pictured) and how much he has grown since we first met him 3 years ago. Due to the severity of his cleft, David Josue needed a complex surgery that many NGOs are unable to provide. GSF has pioneered a procedure for patients like him called a Premaxillary Setback that combines four procedures into one to realign the upper jaw bone, repair the lip, and reconstruct the nose.
There were so many healthy smiles in September! Our amazing volunteers turned your donations into action on the ground for our patients, including:
You helped save the lives of children who would have otherwise suffered the burdens of untreated cleft. We are truly grateful for your contributions.
We will be back in Ecuador March 7-20, 2022 for two weeks with a team of 70 international volunteers. We will share this project with you as soon as possible!
