Bernie Villar

In Santiago City, Philippines, we go to know Bernie Villar, a 22-year-old farm worker who had suffered from a severe bi-lateral cleft lip for his entire life. Our dentist had to remove 16 of Bernie’s teeth before the surgeons could even begin to repair his lip. Following his surgery Bernie didn’t even recognize himself.

The Alliance for Smiles team didn’t just change the way Bernie looked, they changed his life.

Alliance for Smiles has transformed the lives of over 6000 children all over the world.
