Everyone can help
Make someone smile
Support Operation Smile
Your donation of any amount means hope and health for a child born with a cleft lip and/or cleft palate. Help give a smile today with your once-off donation … or give monthly to support a child through surgery and beyond.
45 for Forty-Five (Miles for Smiles)
Walk, run, cycle, swim, surf, gym, hike, or walk the family dog. Do it for 45 days of activity between 7 October and 6 December (that’s 60 days) to raise funds for Operation Smile. All funds raised will be used for corrective surgery on 45 kids that have already been identified. They just need your help to make it reality. Register now at https://45for45.org/
Donate Gifts in Kind
We gratefully accept donations of medical consumables and other useful items, as well as services to support our medical and administrative teams. Please email [email protected] to discuss and arrange for drop-off or collection.
Volunteers are the life-blood of our organisation … giving selflessly of their time and skills to help children born with cleft conditions. Find out more by clicking the button below.

Donate in Lieu of a Gift
Celebrate a loved one’s birthday or another special occasion by making a donation in their honour. Knowing they’ve helped give a child a new smile will mean so much – and we’ll email them a ‘card’ to let them know of your thoughtfulness.
