Fundacion Sonrie was born in Pereira (Colombia) 22 years ago. We help children with clefts from 5 departments (Risaralda, Caldas, Quindio, Choco, and Valle) to smile again. We give our patients complete treatments that include operations, orthodontics, psychology, and speech therapy. The treatment for cleft lasts 17 years for each patient, so we accompany the patients and families during that time. If you want to know more about us. Our webpage is www.fundacionsonrie.org. SmileTrain is our ally
Children with clefts need 17 years of medical treatments to recover totally with procedures like operations, orthodontics, speech therapy, and psychology, among others. Actually the government covers just some operations, but the rest is also needed. In our Foundation, the Medical staff gives our patients the required treatments. Our vision is to rebuild smiles and help Children and families to overcome this problem.
Our Medical staff gives our patients complete treatments that includes Dental Care, Orthodontics, Nutrition, Speech Therapy, and Psychology, but we need solidarity and a lot of love to maintain the Foundation.
We have made more than 1.437 surgical procedures that impact 3.120 persons and 780 patients over the years. Each year we are attending 243 patients with different treatments.
