Operation Smile, Inc.
November 27, 2012

I have been honored to work with Op Smile as part of a disaster relief team in 2010 in Haiti and again this year in Vietnam as part of a burn care team. In addition to cleft palate repair Op Smile offers burn and Wound Care interventions to the poorest popualtions all around the world. Many stories are heart rendering but the opportunity to serve with compassionate health care specialists from around the world and be a part of life changing outcomes makes the work of this group so important and necessary in what is now a world community. I hope everone who knows of Op Smile will give generously to their fine work througout the world.

This organization works with ahost countries that request education and training for specific medical needs. I have gone on four missions and have met the most compasionate members of the medical and nursing communities through them. Their work enables thousands of meidcal peronal all around the world and provides care to hundreds of thousand more. T he relationshp are binding and ongoing and so the work continues after the first team leaves the next team builds on the relationshp and expertise of those who have come before. It is an exchange and cooperative learning. So honored to be a part of this group.

Project HOPE - The People-to-People Health Foundation, Inc.
November 5, 2012

I was honored to serve as a bilingual public health educator and triage nurse in latin America on the USNS Comfort in 2007 AND 2008. I visited seven countries and provided care to thousand of people. The compassioin and kindness I witnessed but moreover was given in doing this important work was life changing. I remember a young man who had suffered a severe brain injury in a motor vehicle accident being brought to our clinic in Guatemala . he had already gone through rehabilitation in Guatemela City but his parent had driven seven hours to see us oping we could give them information on how to further help him. We worked for hours tring to make contacts. We all were so moved by his parents hope in us. Eventually we did make contacts that woud eventually provide him some further treatment back in the capital. I family walked two days from their mountain village to see us about a speciic issue. We did provide care and as they started to leave for the two day walk back to their home the mother turned to me and gave me a big hug.. She said thank ou God bless you in Spanish and it was so heartfelt i cried when she left. The mothers and childen, all who came to us demonstrated such courage and such strength. I was honored to be there. It is difficult to describe what it is like to ride into a medical site whee 600 people are waiting for the medical team and as our bus arrives the entire crown breaks into cheering because we have come to help them. Little do they know how mch they give to us. It is about great hope and great faith that hearts and minds come together to share our humanity. That is what the PROJECT HOPE cause is all about.....our shared humanity.
