Over the last one year Mission Smile with the pro-active support from Muthoot Papachan Foundation (MPF) could bring over 500 Smiles in South India. We are humbled by the zealous support which MPF and its staff had extended to us in achieving this important milestone. We thanks Thomas Muthoot for championing the cause of Cleft in bringing Smiles on the lips of 500 children.
