New Smiles for Vapi

IMG-20160407-WA005

We are glad that another medical mission completed in Vapi (located in Gujarat). This was the first time, we went to Vapi.  The mission was organized at 21 Century Hospital in Vapi from 31st March- 6th April 2016.

We thought that the most of patients in the mission would come from Gujarat. But, we were presently surprised that many of the children and adults came from neighboring state of Maharashtra. Around 26 patients who were suffering due to cleft and other facial deformities received surgeries in the mission. Children like Ganesh and Kunal who came from Mumbai went back with smiles on their face. These smiles keep us going and we would like to come up with more missions in future.

Our dedicated supporters and volunteers came forward to support us in this mission. They sacrificed their hours for these needy cleft patients because of their strong desire to bring smiles to these children. We are humbled that over 30 medical and non medical volunteers across India joined us in Vapi to bring more smiles.

Our medical team consists of Surgeons, Anesthetists, Pediatrician and a team of Nurses. The Medical volunteer team had provided surgical care under the leadership of Dr H.M. Krishna, Field Medical Director and Anesthesia Team Leader and Dr. Anjana Malhotra led the surgical team.

We are grateful to Heranba Industries Limited who sponsored the surgeries of each of the children. Their employees volunteered in the mission. Even volunteers from nearby Hindustan Unilever also joined in the mission to serve the community, they work in.
