see how a simple surgery changed Arifase’s life 

Arifase was born with a cleft lip. Aged 13, she’d never been to school. Other children taunted her because she looked different and couldn't speak clearly.

Her life has been transformed by a simple operation and the work of our volunteer medical teams. But there are thousands of children around the world who still need our help. 

It takes as little as £150 and as few as 45 minutes to provide a bright, beautiful new smile and an even brighter future to a child born with a cleft lip or cleft palate.

Please give whatever you can today and help us make a difference and change a child’s life forever.





“Every child that has a facial deformity is our responsibility. If we don’t take care of that child, there’s no guarantee that anyone else will.”
