Operation Smile is an international children’s medical charity that heals children’s smiles, forever changing their lives.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. One in 10 of those children will die before their first birthday. The children who survive are often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places, they are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can’t afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a productive life.
Every child deserves access to safe, quality surgical care. Every child deserves a future filled with hope.
Dr. Thomas has been a medical volunteer with Operation Smile over the past years. It is a cause close to his heart and he dedicates time and resources to this great cause. There is no greater joy than to watch the faces of these parents and the smiles of these young children after their treatment. It truly is all about making such a positive difference in the lives of these patients and their families.
Since 1982, Operation Smile – through the help of dedicated medical volunteers – has provided more than 3.5 million comprehensive patient evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities.
