Making Healthy Smiles Possible

You gave Lia a healthy smile!
You gave Lia a healthy smile!

Your support in 2020 enabled the Global Smile Foundation (GSF) and Fundacion Global Smile-Ecuador teams to provide much-needed cleft care for our patients and their families during a difficult time. Telehealth, feeding assistance, and speech therapy video sessions were all made possible through your donations, as well as a limited number of surgeries at our Cleft Care Center.

This month, Ecuador began the widespread distribution of vaccinations against COVID-19. We are watching the public health situation closely and plan to resume our in-person missions to Guayaquil in September 2021. GSF is the largest provider of comprehensive cleft care in Ecuador and we know that our patients need us. Due to the cancelation of missions during the global pandemic, we have more than 100 patients waiting for their first cleft lip surgery and still living with untreated cleft.

In March, we will be launching a new program on GlobalGiving to support our missions in 2021. I hope that you will visit our program page to see how you can continue to make healthy smiles possible for underserved patients.

Please visit the links below for more information and to see the patients whose lives are changed thanks to your generosity. If you have any questions, please contact me at lcrist@gsmile.org.

Best wishes,

Lisa Crist
