As many of you know, I will be going on an Operation Smile medical mission to Jimma, Ethiopia this March. Operation Smile is an international medical charity that has provided hundreds of thousands of free surgeries for children and young adults in developing countries who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate or other facial conditions. Operation Smile helps to fill the gap in providing access to safe, well-timed surgeries by partnering with hospitals, governments and ministries of health. I will be eduacting children and adults on Burn Care & Prevention, Dental Hygiene, Nutrition, Oral Rehydration Therepy, Hands-only CPR and Basic Health Care at hospitals, schools and orphanages there. I will also be spending time with patients before and after they recieve surgery.
This gofundme page will help me buy much needed supplies for my medicial mission to Ethiopia. The remaining funds will be donated to Operation Smile! Any amount is greatly appreciated and will make a difference!!
Thank you in advance,
