Our monthly Smile Partners provide a steady flow of sustained funds that we can count on to help the thousands of children still waiting for their surgery. They enable us to fund vital programs such as our national care centres— powerhouses of healing.

Operacion Sonrisa Care Centre in Honduras is a beacon of hope to the world. This critical hub provides surgery for cleft conditions along with education, training and research programs for the entire country.

With the commitment of our donors, and after years of hard work, strategic partnerships and community engagement, we have effectively ended the national waiting list for cleft surgery in Honduras. This means we no longer have to turn away Honduran children who need our help for lack of resources. We can now treat and offer comprehensive care programs like speech-language therapy, giving them an even brighter future.

This is a tremendous victory, demonstrating that together, we can realize our vision of a cleft-free world.
