We are very pleased to share that our efforts to help the children born with Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate with corrective surgeries has won the admiration of one and all. We have helped 58 children in February 2015, 68 in Feb 2016 and 72 in Feb 2017 through Smile Network International medical team from USA and Santhiram Hospital, Nandyal.
From Feb 4 to 9 we had another successful surgery camp at Nandyal. 55 children and adults have benefited through these life changing surgeries.
The Smile Network international medical team of 26 from USA gave their time and talent to perform the surgeries and provided medicines.
Santhiram Hospital, Nandyal provided operating rooms, hospital beds for all those who underwent surgeries. Provided also food and accommodation to the parents.
Foundation for Children in Need was a link between the parents, Medical team and Hospital. FCN was able to gather all the children and their parents and provided them with travel expenses.
Some of the children and their parents travelled 10 to 15 hours by bus or train. All of them are very grateful to FCN for coordinating these surgeries.
FCN staff members receive a phone call and they guide and direct the parents.
We sincerely thank all those who have supported in this noble effort.
