During the recently concluded Vadodara Mission, we reached our 2000th smile with our long-term partner, Muthoot Pappachan Foundation. ‘Smile Please’, the flagship initiative of the Foundation has now brought the ‘Gift of Smile’ to over 2000+ cleft-affected children and adults in India.
This partnership istestimony to the good that can be brought about by conscientious corporate firms who believe in giving back to the society. We are grateful to the Muthoot Pappachan Foundation for their generosity and for creating an impact in the lives of 2000+ children and adults.
Our 2000th child was Mitalben from Bariyani Hathol which is 2 and a half hour away from our Outreach Centre, Isha Hospital in Vadodara. Mitalben’s father is a small farmer who could never have afforded surgery for his daughter without the assistance of Muthoot Pappachan Foundation. Her cleft palate was successfully operated on 21 January 2020. She is recuperating fast and we wish her all the best in her life.
