Missions in 2017
For the first time, Facing the World brought a small team of Consultants from the UK to Vietnam representing all aspects of Maxillofacial surgery, with the aim of holding a week of concentrated teaching and operating focused on one speciality. The charity hopes to hold more such targeted missions to supplement the UK Fellowship Program and the much larger cross-speciality annual missions.
