GSF volunteers are on their way to join our GSF-Ecuador team for the first 2-week outreach cleft program in Guayaquil, Ecuador this year. Many of our volunteers and founding board members began humanitarian cleft care outreach in Ecuador 36 years ago. There are more than 70 patients scheduled to undergo surgery and others who will receive dental treatment, speech therapy, and other services.
GSF staff and volunteers have been busy packing the medical supplies and medicines that the team will need. The GSF-Ecuador team has been conducting patient outreach and meeting with patients and families who will undergo care during the program.
