Does your place of worship support international development work or do your members want to participate in volunteer activities that make a real difference?
We have various volunteer-led initiatives and service projects that can build engagement to raise awareness and help children living with cleft lip and cleft palate conditions in low- and middle-income countries.
From requesting a speaker to learn more about cleft lip and cleft palate conditions, to taking part in the Smile Blanket Challenge or hosting a Making Faces workshop, the power of coming together to create real and meaningful impact for children born with cleft conditions is immeasurable.
