A cleft lip or cleft palate is life-threatening for a child and surgery to correct it is critical. But in so many parts of the world, that surgery is neither accessible nor affordable.
That’s where Operation Smile comes in. Alongside our medical volunteers, we provide safe and timely cleft surgery, free of charge, thanks to generous partners just like you. You make it possible to deliver new smiles to these children, and care for them before and after their surgery.
At this time, almost all our surgical missions have been temporarily halted to keep our patients, volunteers and staff safe and healthy. But the need continues to grow. With each passing day, 300 more children are added to the waiting list.
The best way to help is to become a monthly SMILE PARTNER donor. Giving monthly is an easy, budget-friendly way for you to deliver impact to the children every month. You’ll keep them healthy before and after their surgery. And when it’s safe again, you’ll help deliver new smiles to thousands of waiting children around the world.
Every gift leads to a smile and will mean the world to a child who needs your help. They will remember your kindness their whole life through. Thank you.
