Surgical Instruments Appeal

Recently, we received a challenge grant from a generous surgeon for acquiring much needed new surgical instruments, which will allow us to perform a wider variety and larger number of surgeries.

The total cost, after manufacturer discounts for charitable use, is $15,000.  The donor has pledged to match your donations, dollar for dollar!

Please help FACES take advantage of these goodwill gestures by responding to this appeal.

FACES meets with Spinners

Last Month, FACES Nurses met with the NwRSA, the Northwest Regional Spinners Association.

Morgan Luke and Tracey Gunderson, two recovery room nurses who are long-time FACES volunteers, visited with the talented and thoughtful women of the NwRSA.

Our nurses learned all about fibers and spinning yarn. Then they shared the story of FACES, telling them of the patients in Peru and the use of blankets during surgical recovery.

Impressed by the impact of the work, the spinners of the NwRSA are planning to make and donate blankets, hats and maybe even some sweaters for the patients of the next surgical campaign. We are delighted at their enthusiasm and feel lucky to have connected with this group.

Congratulations to the Raffle Winner!

We are thrilled to announce that Marianne Mandry of Terrebonne, Oregon is the lucky winner of the Maui Vacation package! Her ticket was drawn the night of the benefit auction on October 10th, 2016 at Andina Restaurant.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s raffle! Together, we raised $10,000 for FACES Foundation. The team will be traveling to Peru in a few short weeks for the patient screenings. These funds will directly benefit children born with cleft lips and palates who, without international medical campaigns, would have no access to healthcare.

Enjoy the sun for all of us, Marianne!
