As a trustee for the Overseas Plastic Surgery Appeal (OPSA), Ariel Bruce has been hard at work increasing the profile of the charity alongside members of the medical team and Ambassadors such as Kate Adie CBE. With the October Cleft Camp not far off, exciting things are happening within the charity:
Emirates Airline On Board!
All at OPSA are delighted to be partnering with Emirates Airlines who will be flying the medical team out to Pakistan free of charge. We are very grateful to Emirates for their generosity, ensuring that as many medical volunteers can be flown out for each camp as possible. This way the charity can have maximum effect in the area and transform the lives of as many people as possible.
2018 October Cleft Camp
Ariel hopes to join the medical team in Pakistan for the October Cleft Camp. It will have been a year since her last visit, so she is excited to get out there and get stuck in. As well as continuing to carry out life changing operations on babies and young children born with facial deformities, the OPSA team is developing the work it does with breast cancer sufferers in the area.
Cleft Camp Documentary Film
With the help of award winning film maker Daisy Asquith, Ariel has started planning the filming of one of the upcoming Cleft Camps for a documentary film. Asquith, who has worked with Ariel in the past, is a lecturer at Goldsmith University, and is helping to pick out a young and talented film maker to join the medical team in Pakistan.
