Many children around the world are living with untreated clefts. Most have difficulties eating, breathing, hearing, and speaking. Smile Train is an international children’s charity that supports 100%-free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care for children globally. Their sustainable model empowers local medical professionals to provide cleft care in their own communities.
Every child with a cleft needs more than just surgery — they may also need dental care, orthodontics, and speech therapy. Where these services are available, they do everything they can to provide them to their patients. Smile Train has supported more than one million cleft surgeries since 1999. Every 5 minutes, a child receives their life-changing cleft repair surgery.
To everyone involved with SmileTrain, we thank you!
