- Act Now
Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft lip or palate. Children born with a cleft are twice as likely to die before their first birthday.
Nothing is more precious than a child's smile, and a fairly simple surgery can fix children's smiles around the world. However, the cost of surgery prevents many children from getting their smiles fixed. Those who survive are shunned, teased, and ridiculed. They are usually malnourished, and suffer each day.
Operation Smile is the largest volunteer-based medical charity providing free cleft surgeries. With the help of dedicated medical volunteers, Operation Smile has provided over 220,000 free surgeries for children and young adults. They train local doctors in developing countries and strengthen healthcare systems so more children in some of the poorest areas in the world can be treated.
That's why a portion of every Formidable Forms purchase goes toward helping children receive this life-changing and life-saving surgery. Join us in helping children everywhere by donating to this cause. What we spend on a pair of shoes, or a fancy meal can provide a child hope for his future. Anything helps, so please donate to this cause.
Together, We Can Change Lives
Operation Smile mobilizes a world of generous hearts to heal children’s smiles and transform lives across the globe. Operation Smile’s network of volunteers works worldwide to repair childhood facial deformities including cleft lips and cleft palates.
I hope you'll help me bring hope and new smiles to children suffering from facial deformities.
