Club - Operation Smile
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. A child with a cleft has twice the odds of dying before their first birthday. Operation Smile is an international children’s charity that performs safe effective cleft lip and cleft palate in resource poor countries. We are a mobilized force of international medical professionals and caring heart. Since 1982, Operation smile- through the help of dedicated medical volunteers- has provided free surgical procedures for children and young adults. With our presence in over 60 countries we are able to heal children’s smiles and bring hope for a better future. At Northeastern we work to raise money and awareness to provide surgeries for children with cleft lip and/or palate in third world countries. We also support other community service efforts in Boston.
