I will be able to speak better, people will be able to understand me better, and I won’t be discriminated against.
FROM PORTLAND, OR to PERU
FACES Foundation is based in Portland, OR, and works internationally in South America. In the past, FACES has worked in various locations in Central and South America, but now the team works almost exclusively in Peru.
Why just in Peru?
Because rather than focusing on going on surgical trips all around the world, the FACES’ aim is to create an easily replicable model for locally sustainable surgery and speech therapy for indigent cleft lip and palate patients. We are dedicated to follow-up care after the cleft lip and palate surgery is complete, which is why we continue to go back and treat patients in Peru.
