THE STORY:

Jordan Adams wrote -

UI Operation Smile is raising money to provide surgeries to children who are born with cleft lip or cleft palate. For every $240 we raise, one surgery is provided. In our first year at The University of Iowa, we raised enough for 11 surgeries!

Operation Smile is a nonprofit medical service organization based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, founded in 1982. In addition to providing cleft lip and palate repair surgeries to children worldwide, Operation Smile works as a non-governmental organization to reduce the occurrence of cleft lips and palates worldwide; develops ambassadorships to raise awareness of cleft issues; sponsors a World Care Program to attend to international cases demanding the highest level of care; organizes chapters and foundations worldwide to assist countries in reaching self-sufficiency with cleft surgeries; hosts the U.S. Care Network to assist families in the U.S. with cleft issues; develops and administers worldwide education programs related to cleft issues; and organizes student programs worldwide to develop leadership, commitment, and volunteerism values in young people.

As of March, 2013, Operation Smile had provided according to its own accounting more than 3.5 million comprehensive patient evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities.
