Kids Action for Kids, OST and financial partners funded an ongoing surgery mission for 150 children at Maharat Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital, Thailand, that kicked off on August 8th 2019.
This is the 19th time KAFK has helped fund an Operation Smile Thailand mission. Our volunteers visited the hospital to meet up with doctors and other employees at the Cleft Center, patients and parents. The surgeries will go on in the coming months for a total of 150 cleft lip and cleft palate patients.
Thank you very much to all of our supporters and donors who make this possible. After severe problems with eating, speaking and often social stigma, it means getting a new life for those who receive surgery. By continuing to do this work together, we are changing the lives of those who need it most!
Below you can see photos from our visit at the hospital to mark the start of the 150 surgeries.
