FACES recently received a generous grant of $12,870 from Dorothea Haus Ross Foundation in support of their surgical and health-care activities in northern Peru. The funds from the grant will be used by FACES to purchase equipment to help expand the surgical efforts, including the purchase of a pediatric nasopharyngoscope. This scope will be used by the surgeons to study the anatomy of a child’s palate, making it easier to decipher which course of treatment and surgery would be a best fit.

The Dorothea Haus Ross Foundation, based in Rochester, NY, has a mission to support organizations, like FACES, that serve vulnerable children around the world. The Dorothea Haus Ross Foundation has a number of funding priorities for their grants, including organizations that work with ill or disabled children.

FACES is thrilled to receive this grant from the Dorothea Haus Ross Foundation, and is looking forward to using the equipment they will be able to purchase to expand their surgical mission in northern Peru. FACES is aiming to treat more patients on their upcoming surgical trip to Peru, including a higher number of patients with other craniofacial anomalies, in addition to their continued work with cleft lip and palate.
