Mission to SANTA ROSA 2015


2015 Mission to Santa Rosa, Laguna.

The team operated on 35 children at Filipinos and performed thirty eight palate and lip repairs. It was very satisfying to provide surgical conditions that we would expect for our own children – and Multigate Medical Products Pty. Ltd. helped to provide this.

They provided:

  • Urinary insertion packs (100)
  • Large and Extra Large Gowns (200)
  • Sterile U-drapes (100)
  • Gauze swabs (250)


Jenica had a bilateral cleft lip with an excoriated section on the lip tissue which oozed blood. She always wore a mask when in public. Thanks to surgery provided by Helping Children Smile INC, Jenica now no longer wears a mask in public, Jenica wears a beautiful smile.
