Operation Smile will conduct a medical mission at the Hospital e Maternidade Sagrada Família in Santarém, Brazil, with a goal of providing free reconstructive surgery to 70 patients in need.

Since beginning programs in Brazil in 1997, Operation Smile has conducted 58 medical missions, including eight medical missions in Santarém. Operation Smile’s goal with its programs in Brazil is to not only focus on its ability to treat cleft lip and cleft palate but also to increase the surgical capacity of the country overall.
