The 2017 Surgical Campaign was a marvelous success!
The patients are recovering beautifully, and the team members have finally been able to catch up on sleep!
This global effort was made possible by countless individuals: In North America, FACES recognizes and thanks all of the medical volunteers and their families, the year-round donors, and the administrative team that supports this mission. The Surgical Team was able to provide life-changing surgeries for 49 patients, who otherwise would never have access to surgical care.
FACES also expresses gratitude to the individuals in Peru who support the mission: The Social Services department meticulously registered and coordinated the pre-operative care for each patient. The Pharmacy Staff stocked the necessary medications for both during and after the surgery. And, as in years past, the local Lions Clubs brought food for the patients, their families, and the surgical team. The surgeries would never happen without the support from the South American colleagues.
