Celebrating smiles

Oct 19, 2011

Up to 100 children in Vietnam will have brighter smiles following a mission by Operation Smile taking place in Hanoi this week, in partnership with Amway Vietnam.

On the first day of medical screening, 70 children were cleared for surgery. Most are under three years old, coming from poor families in the Northern provinces.

In addition to the Amway sponsorship, employees gave more than $1,000 to buy coats and toys for the children, and participated as volunteers.

Yesterday, 20 patients had successful surgeries, helping to bring them beautiful smiles as well as the ability to speak, eat and drink properly. The others will be treated by end of this week.

You can see more photos and follow the mission on the Amway Vietnam Facebook page.
