Mark Bugeja, a vital addition to our Colombia mission!

Mark Bugeja, an accomplished Ocular Prosthetist with a background in dental care, has recently joined forces with the SiGMA Foundation, bringing invaluable expertise and dedication to our most recent mission in Colombia. Being a longtime friend of Keith Marshall, Chief Philanthropy Officer of the SiGMA Foundation, Mark’s journey into ocular prosthetics had sparked a meaningful conversation about the importance of aesthetics for individuals facing physical challenges.

Aligning with our primary focus of the Cleft Lip and Palate Reconstruction Project, Mark’s passion for enhancing lives through ocular prosthetics resonated deeply with the SiGMA Foundation. With his enthusiastic support, we embarked on a journey to explore the possibility of performing ocular prosthetic interventions in Colombia. 

Fast forwarding to January 2024, Mark accompanied the SiGMA Foundation on their expedition to Northern Colombia, where he collaborated with the Premium Care Kids team in Cartagena. Over the course of several weeks, Mark demonstrated remarkable skill and compassion, successfully completing 6 prosthetic eye procedures for individuals in need.

The impact of Mark’s contributions was profound, providing hope and restoring dignity to those in need. His dedication and expertise have not only expanded our reach but have also laid a strong foundation for future humanitarian efforts that the SiGMA Foundation will venture to, in Colombia, and beyond.

As we reflect on this success, we are grateful for Mark Bugeja’s admirable commitment to our cause. Together, we look forward to continuing our journey of making a positive difference in the lives of those in need.
