Operation Restore Hope (ORH) is teaming up with the Las Piñas City local government agencies and Las Piñas City Medical Center (LPCMC) to raise awareness about cleft lip and palate and ORH’s next mission to LPCMC next May. Together they are getting the word out into the community by distributing posters and flyers to barangay offices, health centers, day care centers, women’s livelihood centers and public schools. In all over 800 posters and flyers are being positioned and delivered into the Las Piñas area.
Pictured above with ORH Director Ben Mead and ORH administrator Jobelle Yap are Perry Maronilla (O.R.

There is an important pre-screening for the mission being help on Saturday February 15 at Las Piñas City Medical Center at 8:00am. If you know a child with cleft lip or palate in the Las Piñas area, please make sure that they present to the hospital at this time to be assessed by the ORH medical team for possible inclusion in the mission if they are healthy and fit candidates for surgery.
