THE STORY:

I have been documenting medical missions into Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, The West Bank and the USA. I do this to bring back the stories of the great need for medical help to children of these countries. I have become part of Smile Bangladesh ( www.smilebangladesh.org ) which sends a group of doctors twice a year into Bangladesh to repair clefts in children that would never be able to receive this help. My photographs are used on websites , in ads and promotional pieces to raise funds for the cause.

The money will be used for travel and supplies to allow me to document the operation on these children to create images to rebuild websites and raise money for future missions.

Check out www.brucebyers.com/missions

I want to publish a book about the stories and the children I have photographed. I need to continue to document the medical mission to get more material. I plan to go into Africa and South America.

When I show people what these missions are all about they understand how easy it is to give these children a chance at a new life. A cleft operation cost as little as $250 and takes less than 2 hours. On the mission this fall we plan on helping 50 children in 4 days.

I am running out of frequent flyer miles and need your help, more important is that these children need your help.

My charities I work with and photograph for are:

Smile Bangladesh

Hope Foundation for Women & Children of Bangladesh

www.hopeforbangladesh.org

Founded to address the needs of the women and children of Bangladesh, Hope Foundation supports the Cox's Bazar Hospital for Women and Children and Hope Medical Centers which aim to serve millions of people by providing education, acute medical care, treatment, and the rehabilitation of sick, injured, disabled and destitute women and children of Bangladesh. Bangladesh has a high rate of illiteracy, frequent natural disasters and lack of natural resources that constantly erodes its social and financial infrastructure. Despite tremendous efforts by hardworking Bangladeshis to improve their lives, the standard of living is constantly declining.
