Intake Day

Today was Intake Day for our 2017 Cleft Medical Exchange. When our team arrived early in the morning, many families were already lined up hoping to be seen. Unlike our past medical exchange trips to China where we pre-identified the children having surgery, this year ads were sent to villages, schools, and orphanages by Smile Cambodia. Today was the “open call” for anyone to come and be seen by our international team.

Cleft Surgeries for the Datong Orphanage

This past weekend, four adorable kids from the Datong orphanage in Shanxi province began a long journey to finally receive life-changing cleft surgery. First came a five-hour bus ride to Beijing, followed by a five-hour train ride to Shanghai.  Because we want every child to get the best repair possible, we arranged for them to be seen by a wonderful surgeon at Fudan University.  We thought the children and their caregivers would be exhausted, but they were pretty happy when our China manager met up with them. We would like you to meet these brave travelers:
