Harrison Ford is a pilot. Harrison Ford owns a plane. Harrison Ford is a huge supporter of Operation Smile which provides free reconstructive surgery. Obviously they are needed in Haiti and Harrison Ford was happy to help. Over the course of two days last week, Harrison transported 20 surgeons and nurses and medical supplies all on his own dime. And guess what? These surgeons do actual healing and don't just touch a patient and expect a cure.
“This is not about me, it is just about doing what I can to help Operation Smile and the people of Haiti.”
For their part, Operation Smile said, “We are truly thankful that we were able to get here so quickly, in order to begin treatment of patients who are suffering from infections, open wounds, and untreated fractures from the recent earthquake.”
You can tell by the pictures how important this was to Harrison. I don't think I have ever seen him smile this much. Makes you feel good that something as important as this is what can make him smile.
