Please take a moment to recognize some of the organizations that sponsor Thousand Smiles:
Peter Shaw, D.D.S., Inc
Thousand Smiles has become a very popular project among California Rotarians because:
Many children are born in Mexico each year with disfiguring birth defects. The simple things that parents of normal infants take for granted–eating, drinking and swallowing–are in many cases, major efforts. Many infants suffocate because their deformed palates allow liquids to enter their lungs.
Thousand Smiles affords a good interchange of technology between professionals of both the US and Mexico. The exchange goes both ways.
Thousand Smiles is an international program with hands on participation. Ther are many related needs that can be helped through International Service Projects for individual clubs.
The efforts at Thousand Smiles really changes lives. The children who suffer from these deformities have additional health problems. They often don’t attend school, are subject to ridicule. Many children end up in orphanages.
The project encourages interaction between Rotary Clubs in Northwestern Mexico, Costa Rica and San Diego.
