Val Smith-Orr is a registered Australian nurse volunteering in the Philippines. She completed her post graduate burns and plastic surgery training at the world famous McIndoe Unit. Her work is primarily operating and caring for children with burns and cleft palate.
Recently the Rotary Australia World Community Service has accepted Val’s Triple B Care Projects, Inc. as a project and donations are tax deductible. Ideally Val needs more than $260,000 AUD to build and run a good burns unit with treatment and rehab facilities. She plans to have Australian burns surgeons and nurses to volunteer, as well as to teach local surgeons how to do good skin grafting.
