Operation Smile is a NGO with no financial help from the US government, thereby making it necessary to raise funds throughout the world. Being a volunteer nurse with Op Smile, Norrie realizes the need to continuously help raise funds and help support each mission.
“I am blessed to be a member of Operation Smile,” Norrie says. “This has become an important part of life for myself and my entire family who help me with my fundraising. I am so happy to be able to use my love of nursing and combine it with my spirit of volunteerism especially for children who are suffering from deformities and live in the poorest countries in the world.”
And we at Nurses With Global Impact are blessed to be able to share this story, and recognize Norrie’s past and future work as part of International Nurses Day celebrations in the US, and around the world.
Please join me in smiling along with Norrie on May 11, at the United Nations, while also passing this and our other stories along, supporting our mission to raise visibility around amazing nurses like Norrie, and the organizations and missions they support.
