The Yayasan Senyum Bali Patient Coordinator assists patients through the complexities of the Indonesian Health System ie attending hospital clinics and specialist appointments until they receive their surgeries. The Smile House was generously donated by one donor who has been supporting our work for long period of time to help bringing smiles back to faces.
