From 15 to 21 May 2014, six KPMG volunteers joined the Operation Smile medical team in Liangshan, Sichuan to deliver free surgery to around 100 children born with cleft lips and palates, and other facial deformities. KPMG volunteers assisted the international medical volunteer team by communicating with the patients and their families before, during and/or after surgery, recording patient details, taking photographs for posterity, and helping with on-site coordination.

 

In addition to our continuous support of sending KPMG staff to assist on the missions, the KPMG Foundation is committed to sponsoring 50 surgeries annually on its medical missions.
