Much needed medicine and stuffed animals collected for Project Vietnam!

Project Vietnam ( is an organization that provides cleft lip and palate surgeries and post-operative support to impoverished children in the rural areas of Vietnam who would not otherwise be able to afford this life-changing surgery.

Our goal at Just A Smile was to help Project Vietnam collect the much needed medicine and stuffed animals for these kids for their March 2019 trip. After a couple of months of holding donation drives, Just A Smile was able to collect hundreds of stuffed animals and 100 bottles of children’s acetaminophen and ibuprofen for this mission.

We’d like to thank the Tesoro HS Just A Smile Club, Mrs. Vollebregt and Las Flores MS, the Ladera Ranch community, and everyone else for their help in making these donation drives a big success. We couldn’t have done it without you!

We wish Dr. Wu and the entire Project Vietnam medical team a safe and successful trip this month!
