Before and After Photos of Our Patients:

"While it is hard to digest the happenings of this week and put the experience into words, first and foremost the volunteers are what made everything so exceptional. Regardless of race, religion or country of origin, everyone came together to do something truly inspiring for generations to come. We each played our separate parts well and when all of those efforts came together, the results spoke for themselves. Now an impoverished, but extraordinary group of children have reason and ability to smile and communicate without fear or limitation.Volunteer/Associate Board Member, Jeremy Douglas
