Marian Rivera-Dantes visited Smile Train patients at Band of Mercy, a foundation that provides financially challenged children born with craniofacial deformities medical and surgical support.
After her Tadhana taping she went straight to Band of Mercy to check out the kids and give her donation to Smile Train.
Marian has been supporting Smile Train for years now, she was moved to tears how many children with Cleft lip and cleft palate are in need help.
Smile Train Philippines posted on Instagram, “#SmileMaker Marian Rivera visited
Smile Train patients today. Even after years of
advocating for Smile Train, she was filled with emotion as she met patients who had surgery last week, yesterday and today, patients who will receive surgery tomorrow, and newborns who are undergoing orthodontic treatment.”
Marian also posted on her Instagram account, “Sa mga nakalipas na taon bilang Smile Train Goodwill Ambassador, nasaksihan ko ang pagbalik ng ngiti sa mga batang may cleft lip at cleft palate.
Kaya naman walang sawa akong sumusuporta sa advocacy ng Smile Train na pagbibigay ng libreng surgery. At ngayong malapit na ang first year anniversary ng online flower shop kong Flora Vida by Marian, nais kong maging mas meaningful ang celebration sa pamamagitan ng pag share ng blessings sa Smile Train.
Salamat sa mga sumusuporta sa Flora Vida, malaking bahagi kayo sa pagbibigay ayuda sa mga batang tinutulungan ng Smile Train. A smile is such a precious gift. It can change lives.”
