“Give Every Child the Chance to Smile”
Smile Train is an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate.
Many children with untreated clefts around the world live in isolation, but more importantly, have difficulty eating, breathing, hearing, and speaking. Cleft repair surgery is safe, and the transformation is immediate. Smile Train’s sustainable model provides training, funding, and resources to empower local medical professionals in 90+ countries to provide 100 %-free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care to children in their own communities.
As a result of their efforts, and with the support of their donors and partners around the world, Smile Train has transformed the lives of more than 1.5 million children by giving them the power of a smile.
