Medical Missions

Abounding in Love actively participates in medical missions that provide free cleft lip and palate surgery to children in the Philippines. Our charity pays for all of the expenses, which eliminates the financial burden on families who are struggling financially. Below is a summary of the medical missions we've been a part of since 2024. For more detailed information about our work, please view our Program Summary.

Operation Rainbow Australia Surgical Mission

For our third medical mission in 2024, we partnered with the amazing and dedicated team of Operation Rainbow Australia and Kiwanis Club of Cebu. We are immensely proud to share that 52 out of 85 children who received surgical care were Abounding In Love beneficiaries. The medical mission was held at VisayasMed Hospital. As always, we ensured that the children and their families were well taken care of, providing essential necessities such as food, accommodations, toys, and other essentials.
