On behalf of Global Smile Foundation, I would like to thank everyone who joined our Ten Year Anniversary Gala on October 12.
Over 300 people came together to celebrate this important milestone for our foundation, some traveling from other states & other countries, to show your support.
Your dedication to our cause ensures that our foundation will continue its mission in providing comprehensive cleft care for underserved patients around the world. We are privileged to be able to make a difference in the lives of patients like Diego, GSF’s patient turned-volunteer, who joined us from Ecuador as our keynote speaker.
Having known Diego since he was 3 months old, it was quite moving to hear him talk about his life-long journey with GSF & pay tribute to his late aunt who supported him throughout his cleft surgeries.
I want to extend my sincere appreciation to our sponsors, donors, volunteers & board members for all their help in making this evening a memorable one.
With much gratitude,
Usama Hamdan, MD, FICS
