Restoring Smiles with Smile Foundation
Margaret Hirsch, COO of Hirsch’s Homestores recently partnered up with The Smile foundation after a national toy collection drive. Margaret together with Smile Foundation visited Tygerberg kids hospital this morning where some of the children were who received the help from Smile Foundation. Smile Foundation is dedicated to helping children smile again by giving them the necessary access to good medical assistance to get their cleft Lips & Pallets fixed. Their goal is to help children smile again! Without the support of the public and corporates, these children will sometimes have to wait for the surgery and often they miss the window period. Margaret Hirsch was joined by the head of the plastic and reconstructive surgery at Tygerberg hospital Dr. Alex Zuhlke and Smile Foundation SA Operation Executive Director Moira Gerszt.
Smile foundation collaborates nationally with academic hospitals to help these families and children get the surgeries and funding they need for these sometimes challenging procedures. Sunflower achieves the goal of getting funding for these expensive and sometimes challenging procedures.
Commented COO of Hirsch’s Homestores “ Hirsch’s was really privileged to be part of such an amazing organization our hats go off to all the plastic surgeons giving their time and hard work to these children who suffer from facial anomalies.”
