Operation Smile's family of medical volunteers, donors and staff are committed to not only reaching patients but breaking down obstacles to surgery through education, training, medical diplomacy and advocacy. We do that by working together with government agencies, local health systems, non-profit organizations and any like-minded partners to deliver care. All patients deserve comprehensive health care and a chance for greater well being.



These statistics are overwhelming. But at Operation Smile, we believe no child is a statistic.

Each patient deserves exceptional surgical care regardless of where they’re born or how much money their family makes.

A smile can not only impact a child, but his or her family and community. That's the same kind of ripple effect you can have by deciding to fundraise for Operation Smile!



You can launch your own mySmile fundraising page.


You can host a Community fundraising event of your own.


You can create or support Student Programs.



“Every child that has a facial deformity is our responsibility. If we don’t take care of that child, there’s no guarantee that anyone else will.”
