Waiting to Smile

A cleft lip or cleft palate is life-threatening for a child.  Surgery to correct it is critical. But in much of the world, that surgery is neither accessible nor affordable.  During this time, 300 more children are added to the waiting list, every day, to receive a new smile.

Together with you, we can care for children now – while they’re waiting, help children after surgery, and deliver life-changing surgeries just as soon as it’s safe to do so.  With so many children now waiting, every gift today will lead to a smile.
