Every year 35,000 children in India are born with clefts. Without corrective surgery, these children are condemned to a lifetime of isolation and suffering.

The tragedy is that a cleft can be completely corrected with a simple surgical procedure that could take as little as 45 minutes and is TOTALLY FREE!

Since 2000 Smile Train has sponsored over 450,000 surgeries across India. But there are still an estimated 10 lakh untreated cases of clefts in India.

The goal of Smile Train is to continue providing cleft surgeries across India until we have completely eradicated the problem of clefts.
