For many years Operation Smile has been changing kids’ lives and bringing a smile to their face. Operation Smile is a medical International charity Organization that performs safe, effective cleft lip and cleft palate surgery along with delivering postoperative medical care to children in low and middle income countries. At Operation Smile they understand the importance of surgery and advocate for research to find the causes of cleft lip and palate and prevention, treatment and eradication.
Children are born with a cleft every three minutes. Many children with these conditions who do survive will have many difficulties such as speaking, eating, hearing or breathing. Some children die before their first birthday. The surgery can be costly and many do not have the insurance to cover the costs to help their children live productive lives. Operation Smile gives children hope by providing free surgeries for young adults and children. At Operation Smile they believe every child deserves a chance to have a bright future. Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers — has provided 220,000 free surgical procedures for children and young adults. Our work creates a lasting global impact. We train local medical professionals in developing countries and strengthen health care systems so more children in some of the poorest areas in the world can be treated.
There are many ways you can help too! You can donate monthly, donate a surgery, or shop their catalog. In addition, there are other ways to lend a hand by holding a fundraiser, sharing the cause, Raise a Smile by creating a page to help raise funds for Operation Smile.
