San Salvador, El Salvador 2017

Feb 18 to Feb 25 — On February 18th, Austin Smiles was excited to travel back to San Salvador, El Salvador for our 45th medical mission trip to create smiles and improve lives in Latin America. With a team of approximately 45 medical and non-medical volunteers, we evaluated about 89 patients, of which we operated on 41 patients with cleft lip, cleft palate, or jaw surgery.

Our Volunteers

When professionals from across the United States join forces with a common desire to help mankind, a team is instantly created. The egos are checked-in at the door and the all-for-one spirit is unleashed. It is incredible to see how people of so many different walks of life can come together, bond, and be extraordinary.

#AustinSmiles not only helps children internationally, we also provide support to local cleft patients at Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas. Each year we fund a holiday party, spring picnic, and invite patients to attend a weekend, overnight camp called Camp Amigo - bringing fun and fellowship to local patients and families making them #CleftStrong. #CleftAwarenessMonth ...

Each year #AustinSmiles does three mission trips in Latin America with each trip consisting of about 45 medical and non-medical volunteers. Each #volunteer takes time out of their busy schedules to go on our mission trips and raises a sponsorship fee. Therefore, we want to say #ThankYou to all of our wonderful volunteers who selflessly give their time to help these children live #CleftStrong healthy lives! #CleftAwarenessMonth
