In March 2016, World of Children Founders Harry and Kay Leibowitz and World of Children supporters are visiting three World of Children Honorees to observe their work first-hand and see how your donations have made a difference in the lives of children. World of Children Celebrity Ambassador Stephanie March joined them for the first two legs of their journey.
Over the last two days, we shared the work of Dr. Ricardo Bennun, a plastic surgeon in Argentina who has dedicated his life to providing reconstructive surgery to children of impoverished families free of charge. In 2007, we honored Dr. Bennun with our World of Children Health Award. We were so impressed with the way he leveraged our award to help more children that we re-honored him in 2015 with our Alumni Award. This year, we’re thrilled that some of us got to visit Dr. Bennun in person, meet the children he’s helping, and share his amazing work with many more people.
Because a picture is worth a thousand words, we’re thrilled to introduce you to some of the amazing children we had the privilege to meet over the last two days!**
