Operation Smile SA

Braam Malherbe, Operation Smile SA ambassador says, 'Due to the unfortunate disfigurements caused by cleft palates and lips, children are usually ostracised in their social environments.

Cleft lip repairs can take as little as 45 minutes to change a child’s life and future forever. Please Do One Thing (DOT) and help a child to smile.'

Operation Smile SA has performed over 4500 free reconstructive procedures for children in a number of African countries to date.

'We should all have hope,' says 8 year old Rafael, who returned from his operation brimming with confidence, 'because look at me, anything is possible.'
