“Mommy, why is my face different…?”

Every child deserves to smile and live a life of hope.

Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. Often they die before their first birthday.Even worse, they are rejected by their own families and communities. They often battle to eat, speak, socialize or smile!


 Operation Smile

Volunteer-based medical professionals join hands annually across 60 countries to make a difference in their lives. Free cleft lip and cleft palate reconstructive surgery are performed in a 45 min operation and changes the life of these children forever.

Likweti in White River, Mpumalanga, is providing accommodation to the patients, predominantly children and their guardians, as well as some of the professional team. These photos were taken at Likweti on the weekend. We are so excited about the transformation that awaits these little children!
