I will be traveling to Santa Cruz, Bolivia on a medical mission with Operation Smile. I volunteer my time and expertise along with a team of amazing plastic surgeons, nurses, dentist, and doctors. The first few days are screening days where we may screen 300 people (babies to adults). The medical team will prioritize and pick the best candidates for surgery. Then surgeries will begin! There may be 100 children who will receive this life changing surgery and a new smile.
This is my third mission with Operation Smile and it has become a passion of mine. It is an amazing experience to be a part of. I love volunteering my time and working with the children in third world countries. I am part of the team because I am a speech-language pathologist. I will provide education to the parents about feeding their babies with cleft palate and improving their child's speech skills. Many children with cleft lip and palate require speech therapy for many years.
To be part of the team, I pay a team fee, cost for my visa and materials that I will buy to take on the mission. I will be buying stickers and toys to give out during the screening process. I also need some simple supplies to do my work. I would appreciate any donation you would like to make towards my trip. I would love to share stories and pictures with you about my trip when I return. I will be gone from March 12-25.
Any amount raised over my goal will go directly to Operation Smile as a donation-the skies the limit!
Thank you!
