ICSF Serves 16 Missions in 2012

ICSF’s 2012 efforts included a record of nine missions to the Philippines alone. Dr. Geoff Williams, ICSF president, comments, “This country is one of the poorest in Southeast Asia. With the Asian predisposition to clefts, and with poor access to reconstructive surgery, these people suffer a very high cleft rate. We’re glad to be able to provide such extensive help to these very deserving folks in the Philippines. Our donors have made it possible for us to expand our services more every year.”
