I started with LEAP during my fellowship year. International medical work was already a key passion but a question of how and when. During fellowship, Dr. Hobar said the time…
LEAP TRANSFORMS LIVES.
Children with facial abnormalities like cleft lip and palate are often shunned by their communities with no hope for a productive future. They have no access to quality medical care in their own countries and no resources to pay for the surgical procedures required to correct their deformities. Our free surgical services restore their features and empower them to return to their communities as welcomed, participating members.
LEAP is committed to developing long-term relationships with our patients, their communities, and other partners involved in our missions.
By returning to the same countries, we are able to build trust, offer ongoing education, and continue caring for those who need long-term medical services.
It is our prayer that LEAP’s devotion and service to our patients is seen as an example of the selfless love of Christ.
