Prospect Airport Services, Inc. is pleased to again support and sponsor the Global Smile Foundation’s 12th annual mission trip. This trip, to Trujillo, Peru last month, was very successful, having 240 patients screened. Surgeons and the team of medical clinicians and support staff and volunteers performed 49 cleft repairs, 2,061 dental, 235 speech and other feeding services.
The mission of the Global Smile Foundation is to provide comprehensive cleft care for patients born with cleft lip and palate in underserved communities throughout the world. Global Smile Foundation is dedicated to making first-class cleft care accessible to all patients regardless of geographic or socioeconomic barriers. There is a pressing need for sustainable cleft care in developing countries where the consequences of those conditions are devastating if left untreated.
Usama Hamdan, MD, FICS, President of Global Smile Foundation thanked Prospect Airport Services for partnering and supporting the mission. “Prospect’s partnership allows us to change the lives of so many underserved patients with clefts throughout the world and the lives of their respective families. We greatly appreciate Prospect’s continuing support.”
