Our third surgery day was by far the most productive. Many children and adults were able to receive corrective surgery for cleft lip and palate anomalies.
For a volunteer, whether this is your 1st or 25th mission, you begin to see by the third day that the team synergy is rolling and it’s not going to stop. Not until the last patient is released to go home.
Anyone who watches the surgeries can see the remarkable exchange between the pediatrician and the parents or the interaction between the speech pathologist and the patient. You become aware that giving hands and giving hearts are in full motion. It’s humbling. It makes you proud of the entire Rotaplast Lima team.
