Our team of medical volunteers are ready to perform cleft lip and palate surgery on children all around the world.  You can make a difference. Please donate today and help give more children a smile that will last forever.

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. 


It’s through the generosity of our medical volunteers and donors, and the awareness generated by our youth leaders and community volunteers that make Operation Smile successful.


Whether a birthday, an anniversary or maybe an engagement – a gift in honour allows family and friends to celebrate a special event with the gift of a smile.


Whether at a funeral, In lieu of flowers or to remember a loved one at any other time of year – a gift in memory allows family and friends to remember and celebrate a life lived with the gift of a smile.


Donating shares to charity has been a tax efficient way of giving for several years. There is no capital gains tax payable and you can claim income tax relief at the appropriate rate on the value of your shares.


If you have a small amount of shares the administration cost of transferring or disposing of the shares can often outweigh their value to the individual.


Your legacy will help fund projects which otherwise may take many years to complete – a gift to Operation Smile is a gift to the many children still waiting for surgery.
