Operation Smile

We create solutions that deliver safe surgery to people where it’s needed most

We estimate that there are millions of children waiting for care in the 34 countries where we work. 

The majority of these children are unable to receive the medical care they need because it is too costly, far away, or specialized. Because of this, being born with a cleft condition can be fatal. If a child survives, they may face bullying and social isolation. 

We have established a global footprint and currently provide world-class cleft care in more than 30 countries with help from thousands of volunteers representing more than 60 countries
