NIGER | HEALTH CARE
An organisation that performs face reconstruction surgeries in Niger.
Operation Smile is an organisation which started in 1989 that performs face reconstruction surgeries in Niger. It aims to help children to be cured of pathologies (noma, burns, congenital malformations, tumors) worsened by malnutrition.
The aim of these operations is not only to bring a solution to the physical and moral throes of these pathologies but also to allow a social rehabilitation.
Two expeditions are organised each year in the National Hospital of Niamey under the direction of Prof. Jean-Marie Servant. With his team of specialists, of which Dr. Daniel Cataldo is a member, more than 1,000 surgeries were performed since the creation of this organisation
In 2010, the Cuomo Foundation sponsored the «Special Luigi Frateschi support» programme which permitted «a new smile» to 40 young patients.
