Smile Train Cleft Camp Tlaxcala, Mexico Wraps Up
Tlaxcala, Mexico — 5 Smile Train partners converged upon Tlaxcala for a Bi-Annual 3 day intensive cleft camp. Twice a year, partner surgeons Dr. Duarte, Dr. Mena, Dr. Blas, Dr. Miranda, and Dr. León, the "knife knights," travel from their bases in Tijuana, Guadalajara, Mexico City, and Morelia in order to reach children with cleft that would otherwise not be able to make it to their hospitals for needed free cleft surgery.
The camp provided 52 patients with free cleft lip and palate surgery as well as follow up care.
