Smile Train

Unlike many charities that do many different things, The Smile Train is focused on solving a single problem: cleft lip and palate. Clefts are a major problem in developing countries where there are millions of children who are suffering with unrepaired clefts. Most cannot eat or speak properly. Aren’t allowed to attend school or hold a job. And face very difficult lives filled with shame and isolation, pain and heartache. The good news is every single child with a cleft can be helped with surgery that costs as little as $250 and takes as little as 45 minutes. This is our mission: To provide free cleft surgery for millions of poor children in developing countries. To provide free cleft-related training for doctors and medical professionals. Until there are no more children who need help and we have completely eradicated the problem of clefts.
