Mission Report





Kenya



Mombasa, 02 october, 2008 - 11 october, 0208

An Operation Smile team of volunteers worked in Mombasa to change the lives of Kenyan children suffering with facial deformities, providing 298 patients with free physical examinations and 131 patients with free reconstructive surgery. The team consisted of more than 50 medical and non-medical volunteers, including plastic surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, a pediatrician, an orthodontist, a dentist, speech therapists and others. These volunteers from Egypt, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, and the United States worked with a Kenyan medical team at Coast General Hospital.

The Mombasa medical mission also included a Burn Treatment Educational Program led by Dr. Ankur Pandya. Dr. Pandya conducted the day-long course, composed of presentations, lectures, and interactive scenarios, which helped teach local medical professionals how to respond to and treat burn victims.

Since 1987, Operation Smile medical volunteers have provided more than 12,900 Kenyan children with free physical examinations and more than 6,830 have received life-changing surgery during international medical missions.
