Through the event, I was not only able to help the fundraiser for Operation Smile, but also learn more about children who are born with cleft. I want to show my effort to help these unfortunate children born with cleft by giving them safe cleft surgery, so their heart-warming smile can bloom incessantly in this world.

I would like to share with you about the organization,about Cleft surgery, and what I learned through the volunteering experience. As the Operation Smile’s official website explained, they are a part of the largest volunteer-based medical charity providing free cleft surgery for children.

Globally, Operation Smile began in the United States in 1982, and since then we have grown to become a global foundation and have together provided over 220,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities.

Why Cleft Surgery?

Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate. These children are often unable to eat, speak, or even smile. In many places, they’re shunned and rejected, sometimes abandoned by their own parents.

Too many don’t even survive. A baby born with a cleft has twice the odds of dying before their first birthday.

Operation Smile Canada

We know Canadians like you believe every child deserves a chance at life. So in 2011 we founded Operation Smile Canada. Since then, caring and generous supporters helped provide thousands of surgeries for children around the world living in countries where little ones with clefts have suffered for too long.
