Mission Report


Nairobi, Kisumu, Eldoret, 28 october - 05 november, 2004

An Operation Smile team of international volunteer medical professionals traveled to three cities in Kenya and provided free treatment and aftercare to children and young adults suffering from facial deformities. A 50-member mission team from Kenya, the United States, Canada, Egypt and the United Kingdom treated patients at Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi. The team provided free medical evaluations to 187 patients and performed surgery on 96 children and young adults.

At the same time, another Operation Smile mission was conducted in the city of Kisumu at the New Nyanza Provincial General Hospital. Approximately half of the team members on the Kisumu mission team were from Kenya. Two hundred and seventy-five patients received medical evaluations, with 150 receiving surgery for cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.

Simultaneously, an Operation Smile team from the United States, Ireland, Colombia and Italy worked with Kenyan medical professionals in Eldoret at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital to care for children who suffered from cleft lips, cleft palates and other deformities. More than two hundred and fifty medical evaluations were given and medical professionals provided 147 children and young adults with free reconstructive surgery.

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 hundreds of Kenyan children.
