Operation Smile update

Posted on

This has been an amazing experience. It’s been such a roller coaster of emotions here. Some children have to be turned away due to different reasons.Some who really need this surgery are sick and therefore cannot be operated on. It’s devastating to see their parents disappointment. You can’t help but wipe away a tear or two when a parent breaks down rejoicing because their child has been accepted. Hundreds flock to the hospital but only a little over a hundred will receive operations…this time. Today we were able to actually witness the miracles that these children and their families have been blessed by, to stand over and watch a child’s life be transformed by a somewhat simple surgery. Here are some of the photos.

A mother weeps at the news of her child’s acceptance
He’s in, too!
The group of kids we’ve been following
Witnessing the miracle
A little life changed forever…
Smile…pass it on!
