Mending Faces screened fifty-four patients today. The team arrived in the early morning and was greeted by fifty-five patients that travelled many miles to have the free surgery. Families waited to be seen by specialists from around the world including speech therapists, plastic surgeons, anesthesiologists, pediatricians, and dentists. This is when the patient’s pre-operation pictures were taken.
Volunteers were dealing with extreme heat and difficult conditions, but the families were in good spirits as they were filled with extreme excitement for what awaits them in the next few days. For pictures from today, please see below.
