Treat  Teach  Transform

All over the world children born with cleft lip and palate anomalies suffer physically and emotionally. They may become malnourished and are prone to ear infections and hearing loss. Often times, they experience upper-respiratory problems or speech and dental difficulties; many need multiple operations and long-term treatment. They commonly endure isolation and ridicule. Sometimes they are abused, abandoned or even killed. For many families access to surgical care is scarce or unaffordable.  Alliance for Smiles offers these children and families hope for a bright future.


Our  Mission

To forever improve the lives of children and communities impacted by cleft by providing free comprehensive treatment, while building local capacity for long-term care.
