Our 3 Year successful partnership with Muthoot Pappachan Foundation (CSR wing of Muthoot Fincorp) crossed the milestone of 1500 + Safe Comprehensive Corrective Surgeries in the recently conducted medical mission in Puducherry. The flagship ‘Smile Please’ initiative of the foundation has now brought the ‘Gift of Smile’ to over 1500+ Cleft affected children and adults in India.
The initiative was launched in October 2014 and has successfully provided surgeries to children and adults born with cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries in 11 states in India. This partnership is a testimony of a corporate believing in the transformation and making the changes that it wants to see in the society. We are grateful to the foundation for creating an impact in the lives of 1500+ children and adults.
Adhisaya, 3.5 years old and the only child of Jayaraaj and Deepa was the 1500th patient of this partnership. She and her parents travelled for more than 160 km from the small of Nagapattinam in Tamil Nadu to our mission venue in Puducherry.
Adhisaya was operated by our Surgical Team Leader Dr Sakthivel, with Dr Gautam Sarkar & Dr Basavaraj as Anaesthetist. Her unilateral Cleft Lip was operated on 27th February 2018. The surgery was successful and she is recuperating fast.
We are thankful to our volunteer team for providing these life-changing surgeries to children like Adhisaya.
Being the 1500th child of our partnership with Muthoot Pappachan Foundation, she will always be special and we wish her to become the best she can.
