Kids Action for Kids, OST and financial partners funded an ongoing surgery mission for 50 children at Maharat Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital, Thailand. The mission kicked off on October 5th 2023.
This hospital is a big, professional, modern university hospital with great teaching, training and observation facilities, and the regional cleft center for Northern Thailand is located here.
This is the 26th 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 50 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!
