Hello. I am Bob Langert, senior director of Social Responsibility at McDonald's. I am currently accompanying an Interplast volunteer surgical team to Loja, Ecuador. On this blog, I will share some of my thoughts and impressions.
The first girl I saw upon arrival at the hospital had mesmerizing brown eyes and incredibly smooth skin. Fany, 1½ years old, and her mother were slotted into the schedule last minute. She is in for a macrostomia repair, which is a little unusual as I understand it (notice the left side of Fany's mouth and the cleft opening that stretches to her ear).
