‘Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference’- Kathy Kalvin.
Our team from Guwahati Comprehensive Cleft Care Centre (GC4) conducted its 11th medical mission in Agartala, Tripura from 26th-31st March 2018 at Dr BRAM Hospital in partnership with Government of Tripura, National Health Mission, RBSK, supported by ONGC and Tripura Medical College.
The mission team screened 108 patients and 53 patients were offered life-changing cleft rectification surgery. Besides, during the screening process we identified 17 patients in need of nutritional help, they will be taken into the fold under GC4’s nutrition program.
The free cleft surgery mission was given optimum visibility through banners and posters across Agartala. Besides, our patient recruitment team also covered different parts of the state to identify needy beneficiaries and conduct awareness campaigns for the mission, the result of which was quite evident with a large number of patient turnout at the mission venue.
The Government of Tripura has recommended us to conduct the next mission soon to cover the remaining 50 cleft surgeries. The mission team from Guwahati Comprehensive Cleft Care Centre is ready to deliver 50 more smiles in the next Tripura mission.
