MSC & MEDLOG Assist Operation Smile’s Shipment of Medical Equipment

MSC Operation Smile

Over the years, MSC has worked closely with several charities to accomplish what it sees as positive changes in the countries where it operates. Recently, it has been a proud supporter of Operation Smile in Madagascar.

Since 1982, Operation Smile has provided free surgical procedures for children and young adults born with cleft lip, cleft palate, and other facial deformities. It is one of the world’s largest volunteer-based nonprofits. Its first surgical operation in Madagascar was done in 2007, and it has been active on the island nation ever since.

Earlier this year, MSC moved a container of much-needed medical material from Grangemouth in the United Kingdom to Tamatave Port in Madagascar. The container was then transported inland by MEDLOG to Joseph Ravoahangy Andrianavalona hospital in Antananarivo.

When asked about why MSC provided this kind of support to Operation Smile, Thierry Jeandet, Managing Director of MSC Madagascar, said, “Operation Smile not only gives children a beautiful smile but opens wide the doors of social integration, giving them a chance to have access not only to education and a professional future but also blooming family life. This corresponds perfectly to one of our values of equal opportunity for all.”

The medical material brought by MSC and MEDLOG consists of complete kits to equip operating theatres as well as equipment for the pediatric rooms of the hospital to be able to accommodate young patients receiving treatment as well as any accompanying adults that may be with them.

MSC UK and MSC Madagascar collaborated to provide logistical, storage, and overland transport support to Operation Smile to ensure the cargo reached its final destination.
