Every November & May our club heads to Tecate, Mexico to join Tecate Smiles.
Thanks to our long-time Rotarian and honorary member Dr. Jeff Moses, the Rotary Club of Carlsbad has played a crucial role in supporting Tecate Smiles which organizes and provides free surgical care for underprivileged children in Tecate who have deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate. In the USA and Mexico, one in every 650 children has a cleft deformity. If left untreated, the deformity can cause dental problems, speech difficulties, inability to eat and the children can become social outcasts. Rotarians form the fabric by which this project is sustained. Donating your resources to Tecate Smiles, will change these children’s lives immediately. The child comes to the clinic with the deformity and leaves without it.
