Operation Smile: Mission to the Philippines

$1,025 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 17 people in 3 months
Dear Family and Friends,

I am asking for your help to fund my volunteer medical mission with an organization called Operation Smile , "an international medical charity that provides free surgeries for children and young adults in developing countries who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate or other dental and facial conditions".

As a Child Life Specialist, my role will be to teach, distract, provide play opportunities and emotional support to patients and families.  Your generous donation will be used to purchase toys, playroom activities, and teaching materials for the children as well as additional costs associated with this volunteer mission.  All items will be left at the site.

UPDATE: I will be going to Palawan, Philippines: July 11-20, 2019

Your support and generosity are so appreciated and will help to make this happen!  Thank you for considering to help. I am so excited to embark on this adventure and will keep you updated along the way!

With sincere gratitude,

Bernadette

This weekend I completed the big toy shop! Here are the items I am bringing to create a play space at the site in Palawan. The third photo is from fellow child life specialist's mission in India, so you get a sense of what it might look like. THANK YOU for your support!
