Smile Train Regional Update: Americas

Throughout Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean, cleft surgeries have been postponed to ensure patient safety and enable hospitals to effectively respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Monica Dominguez, Smile Train’s Area Director for the region, shares an update on how Smile Train partners are using telemedicine to provide guidance and care to children with clefts during the pandemic. Now more than ever, Smile Train partners need your support to continue providing desperately-needed care to patients and their families — and to address the growing backlog of children in urgent need of lifesaving cleft surgery as soon as is safe.
