Your donations help provide funding for local hospitals in the developing world to provide year-round 100%-free cleft repair surgery for children in need. The hospitals contribute to each surgery as part of our cost-sharing model.
Smile Train’s local partner surgeons use the training and resources to provide 100% free cleft repair surgeries for children in need.
Local doctors are empowered to help their own communities with Smile Train’s training on the latest cleft techniques, while ensuring they abide by our strict standards.
After cleft surgery, our local medical professionals evaluate whether or not additional dental, orthodontic, and therapeutic care is needed. Our speech therapy programmes ensure each child gains confidence with their smile.
