Right now, Zara Larsson is at our mission site in #Ghana with her mom Agnetha and sister Hanna. She’s volunteering at the mission where we hope to treat 120 patients with cleft.
The popartist Zara is spending time with patients and their families and is learning each of their stories. Patients like Sanatu who lived her whole life never knowing surgery was possible.
Zara says, “Many kids with cleft are being hidden away, severely bullied and isolated. Some mothers are even made believe it’s their fault. Because of the stigma it makes it hard for the parents to seek help. Operation Smile is physically travelling the country to find these kids.”
