During our visit, we performed over 50 operations and provided dental care on patients of varying ages. Prescribing Life treated nearly 1000 patients with debilitating chronic pain problems. The treated surgical conditions ranged from congenital craniofacial clefts, congenital and traumatic hand deformities, vascular lesions, hernias, undescended testis, burn scar contracture, complex masses and tumors of the head, neck, trunk and the extremity. Our group was also able to provide a generous donation of medications, supplies and surgical instruments to the local hospital. In addition, to our medical service we also able to bolster support for the needs of the orphans and indigenous inhabitants of the region.

Mansura, Egypt

October 2019

The SVI team was able to successfully complete
12 complex laparoscopic and 27 cleft lip/cleft palate surgeries. The collaborative effort between our team of volunteers and the skilled surgeons,
anesthesiologists, nurses, residents, medical students and staff local to Mansoura made this mission a tremendous success. Our mission could not have been completed without everyone’s individual contributions.

Together, we overcame cultural differences to achieve our common goals of:
1) Providing quality care for the children .
2) Educating the local surgeons and residents.
3) Providing supplies and equipment to the hospital.

Our mission was also able to give more than
40 patients the opportunity to be seen by
Michael Seitz, DDS for dental care.

Cambodia Success Story: Imagine finally being able to smile after 56 years. Phat Nheun was socially isolated most of her life. She was born with a cleft lip and palate that were never fixed because her family could not afford to do so. She never married and lived the life of a farmer. In January of 2018, she arrived at Preah Vihear hospital in the most poor province in Cambodia after hearing of a camp that would provide free surgeries. SVI was able to not only give her a smile, but also a new lease on life.

We only can continue these missions with your generosity.
