Lima, Peru

Dr. Carlos Navarro, a Peruvian Smile Train partner surgeon, and his wife have made giving new smiles their life’s work.  They have been fixing children’s cleft lips for over three decades!  This medical mission brought Dr. Navarro and his team 200 kilometers south of Lima to the city of Chincha.  With a fresh set of FIGS and a clean operating environment, over 20 children received free cleft repair surgery.  Dr. Navarro was able to train local doctors and perform routine checks on the children.  This was Smile Train’s 150th surgical campaign!
