Hey Canada, NOW MORE THAN EVER - we all need a reason to SMILE!
While the world flattens the COVID-19 Curve, there's a longer line-up for kids born with cleft conditions growing everyday. Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft lip, cleft palate, or both. This statistic doesn't change-- even during a pandemic.
Join the coast-to-coast SMILE movement to see which Province or Territory SMILES MOST!
While COVID-19 has temporarily halted our international medical missions, 300 more children per day are born with cleft conditions in low- and middle- income countries. For now, they are added to our wait lists until our committed team of medical volunteers can start what they love doing most-- delivering SMILES.
As the global medical community focuses on the pandemic, we have a 3-phased Emergency Response Action Plan to help protect local volunteers and frontline workers against COVID-19. This plan included the donation of Personal Protective Supplies Operation Smile had warehoused in more than 60 developing countries to local hospitals.
Text SMILE to 4-5-6-7-8 to make a $10 donation, call 1-844-514-8249, or donate online right on your Province or Territory's fundraising page to support the SMILE movement in your region. Your support will literally bring a lifetime of smiles to a waiting child.
