Story written by Kristopher Hall
A 38 year old mother living and working in a rice field does not have many opportunities to wear nice dresses or feel pretty. She does not sit around at night in a thick robe and shop for shoes on the internet. She doesn’t even dream of the possibility of such a life any more, but she certainly will dream of it for her daughter. Ju Ngae Ngae’s mother looks down at her beautiful little three-year-old daughter with big bright eyes and soft little hands and wishes for her to have a life of feeling pretty and being happy. This was only a dream until she found Operation Smile, but now she can go to sleep at night with a smile on her face instead of tear in her eye knowing that her daughter will not have to live with limitations and regrets.
