Evelyn was born with cleft lip and palate. But today, she’s a beautiful college student and a volunteer with the Fundacion Global Smile – Ecuador.
Evelyn Mendoza Espinosa was born on January 30, 1992 with cleft lip and palate. Her family learned about the GSF mission to Guayaquil in the local newspaper.
At 3 months of age, her parents took her to the screening at the Luis Vernazza Hospital, part of the Junta de Beneficencia Hospitals in Guayaquil. At 18 months, Evelyn returned to GSF for surgery to repair her palate.
Today, after years of GSF’s care, Evelyn is a beautiful college student and grateful volunteer with the Fundacion Global Smile – Ecuador.
