1997
First medical mission in Honduras

Since 1997, Operation Smile has conducted medical programs in six cities across Honduras, including San Pedro Sula, Santa Rosa de Copan, and Tegucigalpa. A year round cleft lip and cleft palate care center in Tegucigalpa offers free surgeries to patients with post-operative care and also offers continuous dental and orthodontics care, pediatrics care, speech therapy, audiology and psychology consultations. In 2014, Operation Smile held its first volunteer conference in conjunction with a surgical mission at our care center in Tegucigalpa.

Operation Smile's global volunteer network includes more than 50 medical professionals and as well as hundreds of non-medical volunteers from Honduras. Over the past 18 years, Operation Smile has treated more than 3,600 patients in Honduras with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
