Our very own Dr. Kimit Rai was on Global News this week to talk about operation Rainbow Canada.
Dr. Rai (Surgical Director at False Creek) founded Operation Rainbow in 1998. During Operation Rainbow missions Dr. Rai travels with a team of volunteer doctors and nurses to perform reconstructive surgeries on children born with facial, cleft lip and palate deformities. So far, Operation Rainbow has improved the lives of over 2,000 impoverished children in India, China, the Philippines, Cambodia, Lebanon and Mexico. The team treats more than 100 children on each surgical mission, that each last 15 days. Operation Rainbow relies on fundraisers and private donations, the average mission costs $70,000.
