The INFINITE VALUE of every little child in the world is beyond words. For a child to reach his or her FULL POTENTIAL IN LIFE brings so much JOY & is simply PRICELESS!
OPERATION SMILE CANADA, a charitable organization, is striving to help children reach these goals by providing FREE SURGERIES to children born with CLEFT LIPS &/or CLEFT PALATES. In the U.S. parents may pay 5 - 10 - $15,000 plus for these surgeries. Nearly 5,000 health professionals, nurses, doctors, plastic surgeons, general anesthetists, physiotherapists & psychologists, are going to over 60 different countries to correct these congenital defects & stop the social outcast labels & bullying these children experience - making it impossible for them to lead a normal life.
The charity is providing the mere $240 Cdn needed to provide the following:
1) diagnostic screening stations 2) general anesthetic & 3) suture materials.
The administrative costs are an amazingly low 7%
Operation Smile Canada is doing a fantastic job to change the lives of these precious, needy children who need to be treated like FAMILY - with LOVE & RESPECT!!!
All contributions are greatly appreciated! It is indeed an honour to help!
