Every ₹2,700 will cover transport costs of one child and their guardian.
Mission Smile has raised enough to cover transportation for 8 children and their guardians to receive cleft surgery.
Mission Smile provide transportation to Guwahati, food and accommodation, comprehensive care and the surgery itself at no cost to the patient and their guardian. Most children who need to avail of this live in the remotest areas and their families are unable to afford the travel expenses to Guwahati. Your support will also ensure Mission Smile can continue providing this crucial service to patients for free.WHY ASSAM
The backlog of patients who require cleft surgery in Assam is estimated between 10,000 to 15,000. The state covers a vast geographical area, different terrains, and is inhabited by over 30million people. This means that many communities often fall under the radar due to distance and isolation, especially those living in poverty. For this reason, Mission Smile have been striving to bridge the gap by providing free cleft surgery and care.
A new life here begins and my son and I are happily ready to walk the path God has laid for us.
Our life has been emptied of a great burden, and the surgery has put an end to something bad. We could not thank the team enough for the help.
Well-known plastic surgeons from across the world have been performing operations successfully and bringing smiles to faces at the Guwahati centre. Facial deformity occurs once in every 700 births, according to a latest global study report.
Once the Fundraiser is complete, Mission Smile will hold awareness camps and recruitment drives in remote locations across Assam in order to identify and enrol 100 children with cleft defects. Travel arrangements will be made for all the patients and their accompanying guardians to get them to the Mission Smile centre in Guwahati. The post-operation follow-up costs will also be borne by Mission Smile.
