Thank you for Supporting Healthy Smiles during the COVID-10 Pandemic!

Thanks to your support, Global Smile Foundation (GSF) has been able to provide much-needed care for our patients and their families during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Our GSF & Fundacion Global Smile-Ecuador team members have, to date, been able to:

  • Conduct patient care via Telehealth
  • Offer feeding assistance to parents of newborns with cleft and provide infant formula, specialized bottles, and other necessary supplies
  • Provide speech therapy via video and online tools to our existing patients

With recent improvements in the public health situation in Ecuador and adhering to our COVID-19 safety protocols, our Ecuadorian team members from Fundacion Global Smile-Ecuador were able to provide cleft lip repair to Liam last week. You can see his transformation in his photos - just 48 hours after his surgery! By making comprehensive cleft care possible, your contribution is helping GSF patients to grow and thrive!

GSF is the largest provider of comprehensive cleft care in Ecuador and maintains relationships with hundreds of patients. We have seen that proper care reduces the risk of poor health, poor nutrition and bullying for children born with cleft. Our patients are able to attend school, integrate into their communities and have productive lives. Without the financial and social burdens of caring for a child isolated at home, their families are in stronger positions able to access communities and employment.

If you would like to sign-up for our monthly newsletter or have any questions, please contact me at lcrist@gsmile.org.

Best wishes,
