Mission inauguration with a Lamp Lighting Ceremony
Dear Smile Giver
After 16 years, we reached the milestone of 100th Medical Mission in India. We celebrated it by bringing 100 Smiles to children born with Cleft.
Thank you for donating generously for this campaign !
This campaign helped us to fund the gap to provide surgeries to 100 Kids.
You will be glad to hear that we did not 100 but 103 Surgeries in the Mission in 5 Days. The mission was organised at Kolkata, India from March 15 – 20, 2019.
Over 50 volunteers from India and across the globe participated in the mission. There were student volunteers from five universities got a first hand experience working for these kids.
67% of the kids that we operated in the mission were under the age of 5. All the kids received safe surgeries and are looking forward to a life free from 'Cleft'.
This is all possible because of your support.
Please find few images of the mission attached.
