I lived in the Philippines for 15 years and have seen the doctors from Operation Smile. They do good work but the number of patients treated in my area (Davao City) was unavailable. Also, judging by their budget, they do not seem a large enough organization to do a program on a regular basis in any one area. This is particularly true as expenses are about 50% of income. My personal opinion is that the founders, the Magee's, need to step down and turn the program over to more efficient managers. I have ceased contributions for the time being.
