About This Movement

Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft. One in 10 will die before their first birthday. Many of the children who survive live their lives in shame, hiding their faces because of this tragic deformity. Operation Smile was founded on the belief that no children should suffer or die because of a facial deformity.

Operation Smile is an international children’s medical charity committed to saving lives and healing smiles. With a presence in more than 60 countries, Operation Smile provides free surgeries for children and young adults born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities. We are driven every day by the simple reality that with access to safe surgery, these children have the chance to lead a better life and become a vibrant part of their community.

I am born with a cleft but was blessed to receive financial and emotional support from my family to be who i am today.

I'm running to raise awareness for others who may not be as fortunate as I am, others who did not have a choice and are born with a cleft.

But with your help, they can lead better lives.
