In September, we held our second medical mission of the year in Ecuador. Your support made comprehensive cleft care possible, including:

  • 166 patient screenings to evaluate the specific care that an individual patient requires. Some patients received care during the two-week mission and others were scheduled for March 2023.
  • 133 surgical procedures for cleft lip and cleft palate, and 17 oral surgery procedures.
  • 112 dental procedures including preventive care for oral health.
  • 174 psychosocial interventions to help address mental health issues from bullying and stigmatization, and other concerns.
  • 21 nutitional/feeding consultations to assist parents whose children have difficulty taking in sufficient nourishment due to cleft
  • 25 speech therapy sessions to help patients speak clearly.

We will return to Ecuador in March and September 2023. Stay tuned for our new project in support of those medical missions.

Our final trip in 2022 will be to Beirut, Lebanon. You can see that project here: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/fund-children-with-cleft/

We are celebrating our 35th year of humanitarian cleft care services! You can join us at our Gala Dinner in person or virtually to see the impact you have supported.  Information here: GSF GALA
