Our mission is to deliver free medical care to children and adolescents challenged by microtia, cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. Our team is made up of volunteer doctors, nurses and anesthesiologists who give freely of their time and amazing skills. HUGS helps children develop into confident, secure and responsible individuals liberated from their congenital deformities.
In 2003, HUGS Foundation was founded with a simple goal in mind : to change the lives of children using a team of skilled surgeons to correct congenital facial deformities. The children of our missions have been deprived of a healthy and joyful life due to their congenital deformity and lack of medical care. HUGS Foundation believes every human being has a fundamental right to the opportunity to grow and develop socially and intellectually without being ostracized or rejected due to physical abnormality. This philosophy has spawned the volunteer multi-specialty team of experts that provide medical care to children and adolescents suffering from deformity or conditions that are remedied or alleviated through plastic surgery.
