Asuncion, Paraguay: Sept. 15-23, 2011

1,000 Smiles in Paraguay!

1,000 Smiles in Paraguay! 

Very exciting news – today Operation Smile Paraguay treated their 1,000 patient! As Isidro's mother handed her 4-month-old son over to our volunteer anesthesiologist Dr. Ted to be brought into surgery, there was a crowd applauding Isidro as the 1,000th patient. One of the local TV stations was on site to film the event. Congratulations to Operation Smile Paraguay and here's to creating 1,000 more smiles for children in Paraguay!

Buenos noches,


It takes as little as $240 and as few as 45 minutes to provide life-changing surgery and a bright, beautiful new smile to a waiting child.
