|For over a hundred years, Rotary Clubs have initiated programs to improve lives of people all over the world, as well as build understanding, peace and goodwill. One program would often lead to another. A much-acclaimed project has been a world-wide effort to surgically repair cleft lip and palates on thousands of underprivileged children. As a non-medical team leader on several of the surgical missions, Pablo Castro saw the need for orthodontic and complex dental care for these children. In 2005, he organized Operation Tooth Fairy or Hada de Los Dientes, as it is known in South America.
