What is said here is my opinion, not that of Linden Lab. It does not constitute financial or tax advice. This advice is intended to be useful, and factually accurate, but neither of these things are in any way guaranteed.
Brought to you by: If you have ever had surgery, you may remember that you were nervous about going under the knife, but you probably don't remember being worried that the surgeon was not properly trained to conduct the procedure or that he or she did not have adequate supplies to safely operate.
In addition to the lack of training and supplies available, people in low-and middle-income countries often live very far from health clinics and surgical centers and have to travel by train, bus, boat and foot for hours, days, or even weeks to see a medical professional.
Lack of access to safe surgery is a universal health problem. For almost 35 years, Operation Smile has done its part to solve the problem by providing free, safe, well-timed and effective cleft lip and cleft palate repair surgeries to people around the world.
Safe surgical care is an essential component of health care and a universal human right that should be accessible to all. Essential surgery can not only save lives, but it can give children the chance to live to their fullest potential and confidently pursue an education, friendships and ultimately, a brighter future.
With surgery, Operation Smile is giving patients back their smile, but the impact is much greater than that. It is transforming the lives of individuals, families and entire communities.
That is why Operation Smile's medical volunteers, donors and staff are committed to helping cleft patients and breaking down barriers to accessing surgery.
Through education, training, medical diplomacy and advocacy, Operation Smile is working with government agencies, local health systems, non-profit organizations and like-minded partners toward increasing the delivery of surgical services worldwide.
When Angeline was only two months old, her adoptive mother Tessie found her crying, screaming, covered in ants and left without any clothes or a blanket in an empty pig pen.
Tessie was scared because she knew Angeline had been thrown away and left to die because of her cleft lip and cleft palate. At the time, Tessie, a mother to three grown children, picked her up and took her to the nearest hospital.
Tessie knew that she had to help Angeline and adopted her on the spot. Later, Tessie took Angeline to an Operation Smile medical mission in the Philippines, where she was able to receive life-changing, safe surgical care.
Enok remembers being jeered at, mocked, chased by packs of children and having people recoil in disgust at the sight of his severe bilateral cleft lip. Inhe summoned the courage to seek help and traveled to an Operation Smile medical mission near his village in Rwanda.
Enok had endured a lifetime of torment before he received surgery to repair his cleft at 25 years old. He lived his entire life in shame because his family and friends did not know that there was a routine surgery that could correct his cleft lip. Today, Enok is a baker and says that he has regained respect from his community and now has the chance to live a fulfilling life.
When Britany was 4 months old, she received surgery to repair her cleft lip at in Honduras. However, the surgery, even with the best of intentions, was not effectively, and the stitches broke open, leaving her with an open wound. Fortunately, her mother learned that there was an Operation Smile medical mission taking place a few months later, so she took Britany to the comprehensive care center to be evaluated.
Salaheddine was born in Morocco with a cleft lip. The family rarely took their son out of the house without covering his head, for fear their neighbors would shun them.
Hasnaa told Operation Smile volunteers that she threatened to leave her husband if he would not let her bring their son to receive surgery. She saved all her money, bought a bus ticket, and headed for the medical mission site. Hasnaa and Salaheddine traveled for 54 hours to reach the hospital and receive safe surgical care.If this were a fable, and perhaps it qualifies, this would be the place to point out several additional truths: Foremost, that all first chances contain seeds for a second, not to mention a third, fourth, and fifth.
Presumably I wouldn’t remember anything about this life, so I would make a whole new set of choices, follow a different path and become a different person.
If I did remember this life, and had to repeat it again with new options, it would be the v. The notion of better life for a person can be working hard to earn money, on the other hand someone might wish to spend more time with his family. One might look for the meaning of life in God, while others in enjoying every second of his remaining life by adventure, partying etc.
The second was the insertion of irregular forces as well as for killing million ethnic Poles and 4 million others who were deemed "unworthy of life" (including the disabled and a pioneering method for decoding Enigma benefiting from information given to the Date: 1 September – 2 September (6 years and 1 day).
‘Getting a second life is one thing. Making it a better life, that’s the trick.’ As soon as he said it, Nico realized he could’ve been talking about himself.
