Operation Smile is about restoring hope to families who need it most.
The power of their mission is fueled by their belief that “love is making someone else’s problem your problem.” They refuse to accept a world with inequitable access to quality surgical care. Their impact is tactile, a beautiful smiling face.
Tifie Humanitarian is pleased to be a collaborative partner in their endeavors. We are partnering with Operation Smile to help them increase their capacity for delivery of quality surgical care and social reintegration in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Tifie’s initial involvement has been to send Goal Zero Torch 250 Power Hub and Flashlight that also serve as chargers for cell phones. With this ability for simple communication, patients can make follow-up visits, an important part of the plan of care. Patients can also share their stories with each other and spread a word of encouragement and news about the good being done.
