Our courageous 2018 Mission Team conquered a mission of unknowns with flying colors in February.

Mother Nature decided to act just days before our mission with the strong eruptions of Mt Mayon, the most active volcano in the Philippines.  Despite loosing a large number of team members, Filipino locals urged UI to continue our mission. Even with the multiple volcanic eruptions, locals were confident our team could complete our mission safely.  UI made a promise to the Filipinos to serve their people, and that promise we kept.  In addition to providing the life changing cleft lip and palate surgeries we love, we had the opportunity to serve the community in other areas of need due to the volcano.  UI is proud to announce during our 2018 mission we were able to serve 300 people with new glasses, provide CPR training for over 60 medical professionals and bystanders whom have not had access to training in years, medically screen over 740 volcano evacuees, and help serve over 2000 more volcano evacuees.

This little guy did not want to have an IV in his arm. He struggled for 10 minutes with Uplift Nurse Caroline pictured here. But, at the end of the clash … both had the strength for a high-five. And now this little guy can go to surgery.
