100 Smiles in 5 Days –14th Intl. Cleft Surgery Mission at GC4 - Mission Smile

It’s a grand pleasure for Mission Smile to announce the successful completion of our 14th International Cleft Surgery Mission at Guwahati Comprehensive Cleft Care Centre (GC4), which was conducted from 20th-25th May 2018.

The mission was inaugurated on 20th May in the honorable and gracious presence of Celebrity Artist – Angaraag Papon Mahanta and Miss Japan – Priyanka Yoshikawa (SmileAsia ambassadors) – who came to support our noble cause.  They not only appreciated our efforts on-stage but spent time with the team and beneficiaries during the first day of the mission, and wished us success in our endeavor of transforming clefts into smiles!

The team of doctors, nurses, coordinators and many supporters from Asia, USA and Germany worked hand-in-hand during the mission days.

Total 181 patients were screened and the team delivered 100 smiles through safe cleft rectification surgeries in 5 mission days.

As a follow-up, a review session was conducted after one-week of mission completion which saw 76% turnouts of beneficiaries for follow-ups. This is a Big Success! We wish all of them healthy and smiling days ahead.

It was indeed a pleasure and privilege for Mission Smile to get the support of such a wonderful and hard-working team from India and abroad.

With every helping hand and a compassionate heart, we are paving ways to create new smiles. Your contribution is needed! Donate to Mission Smile and gift life-changing smiles.
