As the world has changed with the Covid-19 pandemic, ORC’s global work has also been affected. This has not diminished our commitment to this work but the decision has been made to postpone all future missions until non-essential travel is deemed safe by the Government of Canada. ORC was able to donate personal protective equipment (PPE) to BC Children’s Hospital to supplement their supplies.
Many ORC volunteers are medical front line workers and continue in their dedication to help others. We remain 100% volunteer-based with no paid staff. All donations remain in trust until we can return to offer no cost cleft lip and palate and burn reconstruction surgery to children and young adults.We need to all stay strong and together we will get through this.
