Via Sir Nigel: Operation of Hope offers free cleft surgeries-29 July

I’m sure that many of you know how much I like stopping over at Nigel’s blog to see what he’s up to in Zimbabwe.  Here is something I just had to share with you.  If you know anyone who could benefit from the good work that Operation of Hope will be doing in Harare this summer… be sure to spread the word!


Dear Friends:

Please help us get the word out to anyone (regardless of age) that is in need of free cleft surgery-

Cleft palate: hole in the roof of the mouth
