RADISSON Blu Hotel Cebu recently hosted a cocktail party for the medical volunteers of the Operation Smile Cebu Mission. The June 6 activity was done alongside the Mariquita Salimbangon-Yeung Charitable Foundation Inc., a partnership which is now on its third year.
As part of its corporate social responsibility arm, volunteers from the hotel also participated in the mission by acting as support group for the physicians and other volunteers last June 8, Sunday. They assisted over 50 volunteers who all had the common goal of changing a child’s life forever through a smile.
Operation Smile is an organization dedicated to transforming the lives of children and adults with deformities through free reconstructive surgery. In the Philippines it was held simultaneously from June 6 to 14 in Bacolod, Cavite, Cebu, Davao, Pampanga and Samar. The MSY Foundation Inc. has been sponsoring Operation Smile in Cebu since 1998, and has given smiles to almost 4000 children and adults in the region. (FSE/PR)
