Project Report | Jun 9, 2022
Ecuador Update

By Lisa Crist | Development Advisor

In March, our GSF and GSF-Ecuador teams spent two weeks providing comprehensive cleft care for underserved children. More than 70 volunteers gave their time and energy to make healthy smiles possible for our patients.

With your support, we were able to provided life-changing care, including:

-138 Patient screenings
-270 PCRs  (patients, guardians, & team members)
-151 Surgical procedures for 64 patients
-274 Dental procedures
-149 Psychosocial interventions
-32 Nutrition consults
-18 Speech therapy sessions 

This year marks the 35th anniversary of our first mission in the country. Many of our founding members are still involved with GSF and continue to change the lives of others.

We look forward to the September 2022 mission and are already well into our preparations. We are grateful for your contributions and hope you will join our newsletter or visit our social media to see patient updates and news.
