With the hope of bringing smiles to indigent Filipinos with cleft lip and cleft palate, the Charity First Foundation Inc launched its medical program in 2004. The program came about when Charity First sponsored a mission for Operation Smile. Charity First is an NGO specializing in cleft lip and cleft palate operations. After the first mission came the Sponsor A Smile medical program.
The procedure for medical missions begins with a pre-screening, which is done by a volunteer doctor from partner organization, Operation Smile. This is followed by a pediatric check-up (for young patients) with the Chinese General Hospital.
If found fit, the patients are recommended and endorsed for surgery. Post operative checkups and medical assistance are also provided for patients.
The Medical Program of Charity First Foundation Inc, in partnership with Operation Smile Phils and its team of volunteer plastic surgeons, anesthesiologists, pediatricians, and speech pathologists have served a total of 301 patients since its inception.
