Did you know that one in ten children born with a cleft palate will die before their first birthday due to a lack of nutrition? Operation Smile’s mission is to provide safe surgeries for cleft palate, cleft lips, and other facial deformities for children all around the world. The organization mobilizes medical volunteers to not only heal smiles but to help create medical self-reliance in developing countries as well. Their network of teaching hospital partners such as Duke University, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Penn State Hershey Medical Center and many others ensure top medical care and mentors. Our Advantage RN family has experienced first-hand the benefits that can result from this type of surgery. Our gift will provide surgeries to children who could not afford this surgery any other way.
