The 3rd Air Division is giving free lip/palate cleft operations in line with their 3rd Founding Anniversary with the theme: “Everyone Deserves to Smile,” at the Edwin Andrews Airbase Hospital from March 11 until today.

Cpt. Aprilina Bibat, Philippine Air Force Public Information Officer, said that the objective of the free operation is to give hope and smiles to people who have the condition.

“Nagbibigay tayo ng libreng operasyon para sa mga taong may cleft lip para ma-improve naman ang kanilang way of life,” said Bibat.

The free operation is being held in partnership with Project BOSS, a non-government organisation.

Second District Councilor Lilibeth Nuño, City Council Health Committee Chairperson, was present during the kick-off ceremony.

Some of the patients being serviced during the four-day operation reportedly came from the nearby provinces of Basilan and Sulu.  (Alinazar Lahid/ E-media)
