I am so grateful to be a member of Operation Smile Western. I have been involved with the club ever since my first year and now I am the VP of Finance. Operation Smile is an organization that helps people of all ages born with cleft lip and/or palate around the world. I am very passionate about this because I was also born with cleft lip and palate.
Every three minutes a child is born with cleft lip and/or palate. In many countries, children that are born with this condition do not have access to the surgical care that they need. This leads to malnutrition, social isolation and bullying. Not only does it impact the child, but it has an influence on the quality of life of the entire family. For as little as $240, we can perform a surgery and change the trajectory of that individual’s life.
My goal is to raise $240 and change the life of one person born with cleft lip and/or palate. I need your help so please give what you can to help make a difference. Thank you.
