Over the last few years I haven’t smiled as much. I lost my pretty smile with my illness as it ruined my teeth. I know how damaging it has been for my self esteem. Now, just imagine being a child born with a cleft lip and palate. Imagine how damaging that could be to them. It makes me forget my problem and wonder what can be done to help. Well, Smile Train is helping with the Power of a Smile!
?So what exactly is Smile Train?
Smile Train is a children’s charity that runs internationally. They give kids with cleft lips and palates the power of a smile. Cleft lips and palates are something that can be solved with surgery, but many people can not afford the surgery. There are millions of children in developing countries with this condition un-repaired.
It doesn’t just effect their self esteem, but it also causes issues with eating, speaking and even breathing! This is something that a relatively simple surgery can take care of.
Smile Train provides training and funding in over 85 developing countries with local doctors to provide cleft repair surgery in their communities for free. Yes, FREE! Can you imagine the life’s they are changing?
