Dr. Geetha and Tom Chitta of Foundation for Children in Need (FCN) have coordinated free Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Surgeries in collaboration with Smile Network International, Minneapolis, MN, USA headed by Dr. Bob Friedhoff and Dr. Uldis Bite of Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, USA. Santhiram Medical College and General Hospital, Nandyal, Kurnool District has generously hosted the surgeries from February 1 to 5, 2016. The surgeries are done totally free through the generosity of Smile Network and their Medical team of 25 volunteers, Santhiram Hospital and FCN. 68 children and adults from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh States are able to smile. We will continue to help the needy children with the surgeries.
We are most grateful to Dr. Santhiramudu, Chairman of Santhiram Medical College and General Hospital and Dr. Madhavilatha, Vice Chairperson for their wonderful support. These surgeries would not be possible without the help of Smile Network International and their medical team. Our sincere thanks to all of them and to all those who supported for this noble cause.
With Love, Prayers and Much Gratitude,
