Longtime Operation Smile Supporter Recognized for Outstanding Contributions to Humanity: Personal Experience Is Motivation for Her Philanthropic Efforts
Date:9/19/2013

(PRWEB) September 19, 2013

“I believe I was saved so that I could in turn help those in need,” Professor Alice Chiu gently remarked while reflecting on her recent honor for “Outstanding Contributions to Humanity” presented by the USA International Culture and Science Academy*.

Alice Chiu knows firsthand the pain of helplessness. When she was six years old her father and eldest brother fled from the family’s home in Canton to Hong Kong amid political changes and turmoil. The rest of the family was to follow, but when the plan failed and Alice’s mother was forced to pick only two children to take across, Alice and her eight year old brother were left behind. For five years they struggled to survive off peanuts and water. It wasn’t until Alice’s school teacher, who tirelessly fought authorities, succeeded at reuniting the family in Hong Kong in 1956.

Prof. Chiu remembers the feeling of being powerless to change her circumstances, and recalls committing then to a life dedicated to helping others in need. She has since contributed to countless charitable efforts worldwide, including Operation Smile where her support has proved instrumental in the organizations enduring success in China and many countries around the world. Operation Smile has carried out more than 141 medical missions in 70 sites in China, and has provided over 23,000 free surgeries for children suffering with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities. Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. One in 10 of those children will die before their first birthday. The children who survive are often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places, they are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a productive life.

“Professor Chiu has been the driving force in the economic transformation of Operation Smile’s work in China and around the world,
