[expand]What is Operation Smiles?

Operation Smiles is a charity giving surgical services to children born with facial deformities, including cleft palate and cleft lip. As an international organization, Operation Smiles mobilizes medical professionals to travel to countries throughout the world with few resources and little or no access to modern medical care, and provide reconstructive medical care to children and young adults in need. Many of these individuals come from impoverished families with no means of paying for the reconstructive surgery needed to lead a normal life. Cleft lip and cleft palate make it impossible to eat, talk, socialize, and smile normally. Through Operation Smiles, more than 200,000 free procedures have been performed to correct facial deformities on children and young adults, forever changing their lives.[/expand]
