Developing Faces Mission Update
We are proud to share that our mission to Guatemala earlier this year was a complete success! We provided surgical care to infants & children that suffered from facial abnormalities such as cleft lip & palate, & (microtia) total ear reconstruction. These conditions are extremely common in Central & South America. Sadly, their access to healthcare is severely limited.
Developing Faces is dedicated to making these surgeries possible. We were honored by the overwhelming response of over 1,000 patients during our time in in Guatemala; many that traveled up to 6 hours & hundreds of miles to be seen. During our week long trip we were able to treat over 30 children. Long hours and a dedicated team led to a successful mission and fostered a truly rewarding experience.
Our next surgical mission, is scheduled for March 2016. Stay tuned for future updates via our website @ developingfaces.org and our quarterly newsletter.
Also, please check out our video from our surgical mission earlier this year.
