Satcha Pretto co-hosts Univision Network’s “Primer Impacto: Fin de Semana.” A native of Tegucigalpa, Honduras, Satcha serves as a Smile Ambassador for Operation Smile and participated on the Operation Smile international medical mission to Guadalajara, Mexico, in September 2008.
“Never before, had I any doubts about the great work Operation Smile carries out, but it had never been as clear to me as it is now, having experienced their labor of love with my own eyes during the September mission in Guadalajara, Mexico,” said Pretto.
"I am in complete admiration for the dedication put forth by the medical and non-medical volunteers, who go in, body and soul, to support parents in desperate search for a ray of hope for their children. As a Smile Ambassador for the organization, I had the fortune of learning from those parents who find the strength to fight for their children, and my heart is filled knowing that in some way I was able to form part of the process that will change the lives of their little angels."
