Everyone has probably seen the TV commercials about Operation Smile that show children with cleft palates, cleft lips and other birth defects and facial deformities. Operation Smile start in 1982 in response to the profound needs of these children. It began in the Philippines with Dr. William Magee, a plastic surgeon and his wife Kathleen, a nurse, gaining support from medical professionals and companies to offer these children free surgeries. Now, professionals from over 80 countries have performed over 250,000 free surgeries all over the world. The program helps to provide equipment, supplies and the talent needed to address this profound need. Volunteer doctors, nurses and technicians provide these services as well as train professionals in the over 60 countries where these life changing surgeries are needed.
