ABOUT THE CHARITY: OPERATION SMILE
***EVERY 3 MINUTES, a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate and may suffer from torments, malnourishment and difficulty with speech.
OPERATION SMILE: is an international children’s medical charity that performs safe, effective cleft lip and cleft palate surgery and delivers post-operative and ongoing medical therapies to children in low and middle income countries - and is very active in South Africa where our low and middle income is our biggest population.
Operation Smile's family of medical volunteers, donors and staff are committed to not only reaching patients but breaking down obstacles to surgery through education, training, medical diplomacy and advocacy. We do that by working together with government agencies, local health systems, non-profit organizations and any like-minded partners to deliver care. All patients deserve comprehensive health care and a chance for greater well-being.
To date OSSA have performed over 4,500 successful surgeries in South Africa.
"THE NEED IS GREAT ...we have the courage to take on that challenge. There are not enough human beings to take care of the need ... We have to continue to do more, we have to challenge ourselves to do more.”
-Dr. Bill Magee, Operation Smile
Co-founder & CEO
Barry, Gail & Steven have decided to dedicate their efforts of the Cape Argus Race to Operation smile - to raise the funds for the cost of a new Smile Operation.
