Review for Smile Train, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Just got done sitting in the hospital here in Brazil with a teenage girl who lives at an orphanage that I volunteer with. She had her cleft palate repaired this weekend, no cost to the non-profit orphanage and was given good care by the smile train staff. Her life will never be the same thanks to operation smile! i am pleased to see their positive impact, way to go!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

caring, effective, life changing for this young girl-

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring, friendly, giving of their professional time

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand into preventative programs also

Ways to make it better...

the hospital had more resources, ie gloves,etc

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

need more money, could partner with add'l org. for research and then prevention/education focus

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am impressed, hope more dedicated, docs and nurses sign up for this chance to affect little lives in a big way for little money

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Volunteer & i work at an orphanage in brazil.
