2015 Mission

Medicine is a science of humanity.
―Rudolf Virchow
It’s easier to take than to give. It’s nobler to give than to take. The thrill of taking lasts a day. The thrill of giving lasts a lifetime
―Joan Marques
In 2015, our team traveled to Colombia to provide medical care to children born with cleft lip and palate deformities. We partnered with local healthcare providers to identify and treat patients who could benefit from our services. During our mission, we performed surgical procedures to repair cleft lips and palates, and provided follow-up care to ensure proper healing. Our team also provided education and training to local healthcare providers to improve their ability to care for patients with cleft lip and palate deformities. By the end of our mission, we had provided care to dozens of children and their families, improving their quality of life and giving them a chance for a brighter future.
