Join Operation Smile on a Medical Mission to Guadalajara, Mexico
September 7, 2017
An Operation Smile medical mission trip is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and they would love you to join them! During your time at the mission site in Guadalajara, Mexico, you’ll have the chance to meet patients as they arrive for screening, and follow them through the entire mission experience, from their medical evaluations to the operating room and recovery. You’ll meet the medical volunteers who donate their time to make Operation Smile’s missions possible, see firsthand the transformation that occurs with a simple surgery, and experience the overwhelming relief of a parent who poured all their hope into this one day.
Every monetary donation made through October 31, 2017, will help your club enter the drawing to win a spot on a mission trip scheduled for February 13-17, 2018! Operation Smile will add up all the donations they have received from your club since July 2016. For every $500 donated, your club will get one entry to win! The GFWC Executive Committee will draw club winners by November 15; winning clubs will select the mission participant. Please note that the winners receive a mission spot, but travel costs to participate in the medical mission are paid by the winner.
Operation Smile is excited that GFWC clubwomen will be taking part in a medical mission next year, and thanks the many clubs who have helped make this mission a reality! Together, GFWC and Operation Smile are transforming helplessness into hope for countless children and their families.

Serving as MVR President has been a wonderful experience. I’ve been able to work with members from my own state of Missouri for my first Region Conference and from Iowa for my second Regional Conference. Having been able to get to know our International President, President-elect, and the Presidents from the other 7 Regions has been an enlightening and wonderful experience. I’ve learned so very much from each of them!
