A few weeks ago, FAR and Project Smile changed the lives of 54 young Armenians.  At the “Arabkir” Medical Center in Yerevan, 64 surgeries were performed on the 54 patients. The most common surgeries included primary palate repair and lip scar revision. 12 of the patients were from Yerevan, and the remainder traveled from different regions throughout Armenia in order to receive this life-changing surgery.  Though most patients were between one and 26 years old, there were 11 patients less than twelve months of age.

[FAR Health Programs | Project Smile]: More than one hundred smiles. standard

Sometimes, it can be hard to come across a smile in Armenia.  This is generally due to difficult social conditions that FAR works to remedy.  However, some children are simply unable to smile, as they are born with the congenital defect of cleft palate or lip.
