Kids in Need Deserve Necessary and Essential Surgical Services

Dr. Michael J. Busuito and other physicians working with Operation KINDNESS travel to foreign countries to provide surgical care to children suffering from severe deformities (mostly cleft lips and palates) that would otherwise go untreated due to lack of medical care and technology in their homeland.
The children treated by Operation KINDNESS are the poorest of the poor, without its services, these kids would have little to no chance of leading a normal life.
Operation KINDNESS travels to areas where the need is greatest and continue returning until all the children are treated. For the past ten years, Operation KINDNESS has been traveling to southern Mexico near Guatemala despite the dangers presented by the ongoing drug war and violence in Mexico.

Since September 2004 Operation KINDNESS has treated thousands of patients who otherwise would have not received treatment to correct:

  • Cleft lips and palates
  • Burn scars
  • Cancerous and Precancerous lesions
  • And many other debilitating Conditions

Operation KINDNESS has found a way to bring about the connection! Making the world a better place… One child at a time

"There is a need for help. There are people that are willing and able to help. The goal is to connect the need with the right people."
