The Local Leos: Friendships to celebrate

The young members of the Lions Club are called Leos, and there are several of these young Peruvians in particular who have embraced the service culture of their Lions Club and become wonderful colleagues of the FACES Foundation. They are the future leaders of their communities, and they are leading through service.

Over the years, we have appreciated the enthusiasm and compassion demonstrated by the Lions Club members, including the Leos. On our most recent trip to Peru, Olga introduced us to a former professor, Dr. Robles. He currently treats patients with clefts & other facial anomalies at Mercedes Hospital in Chiclayo. He will be a great resource to many of our shared patients.
