Following the gala dinner with the well-known TV personality Eleonora Daniele and the actor Roberto Ciufoli. An event to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Operation Smile around the world and to support the Organization's commitment for the next ten years: to provide free and safe medical care to one million patients with facial malformations in low- and middle-income countries.
“For over four decades, according to Silvia De Dominicis, president of Operation Smile Italy, Operation Smile has provided surgical and multidisciplinary care in low- and middle-income countries, ensuring thousands of people with facial malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, all necessary medical assistance. It is the same commitment that the Operation Smile Italia ETS Foundation wishes to share through this initiative: providing essential and free care to those in need entails going beyond surgery and ensuring comprehensive and multidisciplinary assistance, ranging from speech therapy to nutrition, and orthodontics to psychological support. An evening of solidarity to ensure that every child and every person everywhere in the world has access to safe, high-quality care”.
“I am very gladly taking the opportunity to bring together - explains Gelasio Gaetani - in an open discussion, two topics that are apparently so distant, but are actually very close: creating a sustainable project is a goal that both those who is in viticulture and those who deal with people in need and the parallelism continues because, a bit like in the world of wines, even in the broad panorama of solidarity there are some excellences that deserve to be highlighted, Operation Smile Italia is undoubtedly one of these. Smile and Wine are two worlds that must share the same goal: to create healthy and sustainable smiles”.
