Many of you are familiar with our Landmark Program, which brings children with the most severe craniofacial problems to Dallas from locations around the world in order to provide free medical and surgical care that is simply not an option in their home countries. There are many details that require coordinating to plan for these children to travel to Dallas, including staying with a loving host family.
We have been very blessed by the many LEAP volunteers who have opened their homes to these children and sometimes a family member for varying periods of time, depending upon their surgical needs and circumstances. Providing transportation for medical appointments and other needs is also involved.
Each year, we plan to bring four children to Dallas, and we are looking for loving host families to help. If you are interested in learning more about hosting or would like to be involved with this program, please contact the LEAP office at (972) 566-6550.
