BENEFITING: Operation Smile
Children who are born with cleft lip or cleft palate are faced with challenges many of us cannot ever imagine. Many have difficulty eating, speaking or even smiling and in some parts of the world, they are hidden away, kept from socializing, attending school or playing an active role in their community.
Operation Smile reverses this in less than an hour. Our volunteers work tirelessly to help these children have a bright and hopeful future. Throughout the world, more than 150,000 children have experienced this transformation, and a few of their stories are told here.
It only take's you giving a little to create a lot of happiness in just a few children who get chosen to get the facial reconstructive surgery done.
For as little as $240US or just $20US a month you can help provide a cleft lip surgery that will transform the life of a child. We have volunteer medical teams standing by. Now we need your help. Your gift today will help Operation Smile teams restore a child's smile and change his or her life forever!
