In November 2011 AfS sent educational teams to visit 3 sites in China: Harbin, Wenzhou, and Jiujiang. The Harbin Treatment Center, which had been in the formative stages prior to the mission, was formally dedicated on November 2, 2011. The President of the Harbin Children's Hospital has made a firm commitment to providing free interdisciplinary evaluation and treatment of cleft children. Along with her commitment came commitments from the Mayor of Harbin, the President of the Red Cross, and the heads of various governmental agencies. With this type of support, Alliance for Smiles looks forward to a very successful future in working with this Treatment Center.
