Thank you for supporting our patients in Ecuador during the past year. By making Telehealth and feeding/nutrition assistance possible, your gift helped Global Smile Foundation (GSF) and Fundación Global Smile-Ecuador provide comprehensive cleft care to patients in a difficult time.
We plan to return to Guayaquil, Ecuador in September 2021 after having had to cancel three outreach programs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have expanded this upcoming program to help the hundreds of patients who urgently need our humanitarian cleft care services. So many of our patients have been waiting for care during the last 15 months or even longer, because access to cleft care is extremely limited in the country. In addition, parents of the many new babies born with cleft have asked for assistance.
Fundación Global Smile-Ecuador also hopes to re-open our Cleft Care Center in Guayaquil. The Center was closed temporarily during the pandemic and its reopening will be essential to meeting the needs of our increased patient population.
GlobalGiving will retire this project shortly and we hope you will be part of our new campaign for the September 2021 outreach program. Please follow us on social media or join our monthly updates list (links below).
We are truly grateful for your support.
