Healing the Children New Jersey sent a team of doctors to Arequipa, Peru in April 2017 to perform surgeries on twenty-two children born with cleft lip and palate. Dr. Lloyd Gayle, a renowned plastic surgeon in New York City led a medical team of thirteen volunteers.
The children, who were pre-screened, traveled from all over Peru to receive donated, life-changing medical care. The medical team was hosted by the Hospital Infantil Tony Molleapaza Rojas. Thank you to our supporters, for enabling HTCNJ to dramatically improve the lives of twenty-five children on this trip.
