Leading Filipino oral, dental and personal care brand manufacturer Lamoiyan Corp., makers of the popular Hapee toothpaste, recently strengthened its support for Operation Smile Philippines, the local subsidiary of Operation Smile, by donating a total of One Million Pesos to the group in order to help provide reconstructive surgery to children and young adults with “cleft” problems or facial deformities under its “The Journey Home” medical mission. This year’s mission coincides with the global celebration of Operation Smile’s 30th anniversary and is a month-long, multi-site effort. It is the group’s biggest international mission ever mounted in the country and in the world, with 1,000 Filipino and foreign volunteers from 35 countries providing 3,000 free dental treatments.
