Mission Report


Meru, 16-26 april, 2008

An Operation Smile team of volunteers worked in Meru to change the lives of Kenyan children. The mission team, including more than 30 medical and non-medical volunteers, worked at Meru District Hospital, performed more than 225 physical examinations and provided new smiles to 113 patients. Parents from throughout Kenya brought their children to the hospital hoping that their son or daughter will receive free reconstructive surgery.

The team consisted of volunteer members, including plastic surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, a pediatrician, orthodontists, a speech therapist and others. Medical volunteers from the United States worked together with their Kenyan counterparts to comprise the medical team.

This was the second medical mission to Meru and the 60th medical mission Operation Smile has conducted in Kenya. This mission was supported by Operation Smile, Operation Smile United Kingdom, Consolidated Bank, and Kenya Methodist University in Meru.
