Mission Smile had entered into a partnership with IOCL (Indian Oil Corporation Ltd.) to restructure 300 smiles of patients with cleft deformities in Assam & Meghalaya in Nov’2018.
Under this agreement, IOCL supported 50% of the cost and balance 50% of the cost is borne by Assam and Meghalaya Governments under PPP model. Under IOCL banner, Mission Smile team visited different districts of Assam and Meghalaya and conducted awareness meeting and screening camps in collaboration with RBSK and NHM, Govt. of Assam and Govt. of Meghalaya.
