Stryker employees, friends and family are helping to fund critically-needed surgical care for children with cleft conditions in low-and middle-income countries.

In addition to supporting surgical care, Stryker sponsors various Operation Smile education and training programs that aim to:

  • Provide individualized training to surgeons across the world so that they can deliver safe, effective and timely care.

  • Elevate the skills and training of residents in general surgery in Rwanda through 3-week missions that teach residents the skills necessary to treat everything from cleft lip and cleft palate to burns and tumors.

With Stryker’s support, which to date totals over $2 million in cash and gifts in kind, Operation Smile has been able to deliver the highest quality surgical care to the world’s most marginalized populations, and grow its reach to more than 60 countries worldwide.

Yet there is still more to do. No singular NGO, corporation or government can, alone, solve the global lack of access to surgery. Together we can change the way health care is delivered in low- and middle-income countries across the globe.

Through the Stryker Smiles campaign, YOU can help us transform the lives of children across the globe.
