ICSF Serves Team Missions to Two New Locations in Second Quarter

Due to very good continued donor support to ICSF, two new team missions were carried out in April (Hai Phong, Vietnam Children’s Hospital) and in May (Cebu, Philippines Children’s Sanitorium). This brings the total of locations where ICSF serves team missions to seven.

Toan (before) Toan (after)

Toan (before and after surgery) was a patient of ICSF’s first team mission to Vietnam.

As mentioned in ICSF’s first quarter newsletter, team missions, although they are more expen- sive, are more capable of treating all who come hoping for surgery. A total of eighteen doctors and nurses from four countries volunteer on a regular basis to staff ICSF’s team missions. Dr. Williams also served solo surgical missions to Xian, China, in May and Toluca, Mexico, in June.

Six-month old Anthony (above) was one of several orphans treated by ICSF in Xian, China. Following surgery (right) he will stand a much better chance of being adopted.

James Carl of the Philippines before surgery (far left) and after (near left) had a particularly severe bilateral cleft lip, which an ICSF team repaired.
