Event description

Description

You are invited to join us for a fun and inspiring evening where you can meet the Operation of Hope team, enjoy delicious hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, and a live auction.

This team of specialist nurses and surgeons from Calgary will travel to Bulawayo (Zimbabwe) this May to provide free, life-altering surgeries for children and adults with facial deformities. All funds raised during the event will go toward the purchase of crucial medical equipment and supplies.

Over the course of six operating days, at least 50 people from various parts of the country will benefit from free surgeries from the volunteer medical group. Patients range in age from 6 months to 60 years old, with the majority of patients 6 months to 8 years of age.

On behalf of everyone at Operation of Hope, thank you for supporting us. Your contribution enables us to provide life altering surgeries that gives these young children the fulfilling childhoods they deserve.
