Tegucigalpa, Honduras medical mission
Operation Smile will conduct a medical mission at its cleft lip and cleft palate care center in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The team of 17 local and international medical volunteers aim to provide surgery to 25 patients in need at the center. Operation Smile’s year round 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.
Since beginning programs in Honduras in 1997, Operation Smile has conducted 125 medical missions in Honduras, including 95 medical missions in Tegucigalpa. Operation Smile’s strategy with its programs in Honduras is to eradicate the backlog of patients who need surgery by expanding its resources in the country over the next five years.
