However, whilst most people
can access a doctor, the problem is many cannot afford the Medication
prescribed by the local doctor. Smiles assists in every way we are able
to ensure medical needs are met through partnerships we have with
Pharmacies to purchase from.
We also finance some special medical services
within our projects, which include Cataract Surgeries and
assisting those within our projects who need Medical Tests, some
of which require payment and often are only
available in other cities, outside Oradea. This can then also involve
significant travel and even overnight accommodation. Smiles endeavours

Tileagd Complex we are able to offer Dental and Optometry
services. We also have visiting doctors from the UK and America through

The 20/20 project is a development
within our Vision project with doctors and surgeons from the United
Kingdom and America partnering with Smiles and Romanian doctors to
provide urgently needed Cataract Surgery for the poor, who in many
cases, have lost their sight through the absence of a simple operation.

As you will appreciate, Medical problems will
not always come at a good time and will often bring financial
implications for the individual or entire family. Your support of the
Medical Project enables the Smiles Foundation to respond to medical
emergencies with the specific support and associated help which can make
a huge difference for someone facing challenging medical issues.
The quality of our services is very dependent
on the continuing support we receive from donors around the world.
We trust that through our support of those
facing medical illness, we will contribute to the quality of life for
some of those who suffer physically or mentally, which often leads to
additional financial difficulties.
We want to thank all those who help us achieve
this; to all of our partners and friends who support this project.
Together we will continue the work of
‘Making Smiles in Romania’.
