QUANG NGAI (VNS) — This year's Operation Smile Viet Nam began yesterday to provide free medical examinations and treatment for children with cleft palates and lips from the central provinces of Quang Tri, Da Nang, Quang Nam, Phu Yen and Quang Ngai.

The mission will run until Friday before moving to Ha Noi from November 9-20.

ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Viet Nam has contributed US$50,000 for this year's Operation Smile to sponsor 200 children born with cleft lips and palates in Quang Ngai and Ha Noi.

Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that performs safe, effective cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, and delivers postoperative and ongoing medical therapies to children in developing countries.

Since arriving in Viet Nam in 1989, the group has changed the lives of over 38,000 children and young adults who suffer from severe facial deformities. — VNS
