Next May, the third mission to Cuzco sponsored by the Children of Peru Foundation will take place. A group of doctors, surgeons, anesthesiologists and nurses from Medical Missions For Children (MMFC) will spend a week in Cuzco and will provide free surgeries to roughly 80 poor children with cleft lips & palates as well as other facial deformities.
This will be a life changing event for these children and their families.
The total cost of the mission is $30,000.00 (thirty thousands dollars). The organization currently has a bit more than $10,000.00 (ten thousands dollars).
We need to raise $20,000.00 (twenty thousand dollars) in the next few weeks.
For those of you who supported us with donations in past years and wanted to continue doing it, this is the time to make your 2009 donation. If you already made your 2009 donation, consider reaching out to a few friends and/or family to let them know about your support to our projects and get them to become supporters as well. If you cannot afford to make a donation, please help us by spreading the word in your community.
I also know that the children in Cuzco need the surgery that we can provide them. I know that their lives will be changed forever. You can help to make it happen with your donation.
