Smile China Mission 2007
In April of 2007, the Smile China team conducted a mission in the city of Hangzhou, Jejiang. The mission took place at the Jeijang Number One People’s Hospital under the gracious hosting of Dr. Wu Sufan. Patients were prescreened from underprivileged areas (family income less than 2000RBM per annum) in the outskirts of Jeijang and other parts of China. The registration process had to be cut short after 3 days when 335 patients and their family flocked in. 100 patients were finally chosen according to their needs, suitable age and health conditions. The remaining registrants will be archived for future missions. All operations were completed after 6 days of work without any complications. This is the first time a Smile China team was comprised of both North American surgeons as well as Chinese surgeons who had adopted the same spirit as us in helping the underprivileged. In the future, Smile China will be more proactive in recruiting more Chinese doctors to help their own.
