Lima, Peru - November 5-10, 2023
Healing the Children Rocky Mountains will return to Lima, Peru for the ninth time November 5-10th, 2023. With the help of so many Peruvian volunteers and social workers who are finding children in need all over Peru, we will start screening patients on November 5th at Dos de Mayo Hospital.
We will then perform surgeries and treat patients from November 6-10th. We plan on performing over 100 cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries. We will also perform pediatric eye surgeries such as strabismus and ptosis. We will continue to give free eye and hearing exams and then distributing over 300 eyeglasses and 80 hearing aids free of charge to patients. We will also have speech therapists to help those cleft children who need speech therapy both for speech and feeding.
Our plan and mission are to help hundreds of patients who desperately need our help and bring smiles to all these children and families. We really appreciate all your support!
