Mission Report


Nairobi, Nakuru, Mombasa, 26 october - 06 november, 2005

An Operation Smile team of international volunteer medical professionals was in three cities in Kenya to provide free treatment and aftercare to children and young adults suffering from facial deformities. One-half of the medical volunteers on the three mission teams were from Kenya. Nearly 40 Operation Smile volunteers worked as a team and provided free medical evaluations to 208 children and treated 109 patients at Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi. These medical and non-medical volunteers were from Canada, Hong Kong, Italy, Kenya, the Philippines, South Africa, the United Kingdom and United States.

And another Operation Smile mission was conducted in the city of Nakuru at the Provincial General Hospital. The 44-member volunteer team of plastic surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, a pediatrician, dentist, speech pathologist and others, were from Brazil, Ireland, Italy, Kenya, the Philippines, the United States and Venezuela. Two hundred eighty-one children and young adults received free medical evaluations from the team, and 158 received free reconstructive surgery.

A third Operation Smile team worked with Kenyan medical professionals in Mombasa at Provincial General Hospital Coast Province and cared for children who suffer from cleft lips, cleft palates and other deformities. This team of 51 medical and non-medical volunteers from Belgium, Ireland, Kenya, the Philippines and United States provided medical evaluations to 184 children and young adults and treated 117 children who now have hope and new smiles.

In total, more than 125 volunteer team members from around the world, including plastic surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, pediatricians, dentists and speech therapists, spent two weeks changing the lives of 384 Kenyan children.
