SmileTrain.org Website Offers Cleft Surgery
Hope, Patient Stories
free cleft surgery your donation will help provide is a modern-day medical
miracle. It costs as little as $250 and takes as little as 45 minutes.
That's all it takes to give a desperate child not just a new smile, but
a new life.
The Smile Train is focused on
solving a single problem: cleft lip and palate.
Clefts are a major problem in
developing countries, where millions of children suffer with unrepaired
clefts. These children cannot eat or speak properly, and aren't allowed
to attend school or hold a job.
They face lives filled with
shame and isolation, pain and heartache.
These children suffer not because
they were born with a cleft, but because they were born too poor to afford
surgery. Yet a child with a cleft can be helped with surgery
that costs as little as $250 and takes as little as 45 minutes.
The mission of The Smile Train
Since March 2000 The Smile Train
has provided free cleft surgery for 221,198 children. Being born with a
cleft in a developing country is truly a curse. In Uganda, a baby born
with a cleft is given the name Ajok which means literally, cursed
by God. No one knows how many newborns with clefts are abandoned
To provide free cleft surgery for
millions of poor children in developing countries
To provide free cleft-related training
for doctors and medical professionals
To do this until there are no more
children who need help and we have completely eradicated the problem of
Thos who find a Smile Train
free cleft surgery program not only survive, they thrive. After a 45 minute
surgery hands them back their future, and a second chance at life.
