Marooned smile missions and displaced smilemakers

That is what war does to innocent cleft children.
Yesterday,as I was walking around New York City with my brother , a friend from Yemen called to ask if he could send some pictures of a recently born cleft child in war torn Yemen where I had served before the war.
Most doctors have fled. Some local doctors had seen the child and told the parents that the child did not have a cleft!
That's what happens when war destroys medical infrastructure and there are no longer any referral services.
I was helpless because no one can enter the country now.
One can only hope and pray that the war will end soon.
