Operation Smile 23rd Gala Dinner and Charity Art Auction - Thank You 

Operation Smile Vietnam would like to sincerely thank everyone for your tireless support to the 23rd Gala Dinner and Charity Auction of Operation Smile - “Winter Wonderland” held on December 5th, 2015.  With your generosity, our volunteers will now be able to change more than 500 lives of children disfigured and disabled by oral cleft, bring them hope and brighter future in the next coming days.

An estimated 4,000 Vietnamese are born every year with a cleft lip, cleft palate or both plus a backlog of thousand unreachable, unless we treat them, they will be ridiculed, bullied and rejected by their peers for the rest of their lives.  Eventually, they will lose their self-esteem, drop out of school, grow uneducated and become a burden to their families.  Can you imagine a worst fate? 

However, we have a solution, that Operation Smile volunteers can repair these congenital deformities and turnaround the lives of the afflicted children in as short as 45 minutes.  In our 26 years of existence, we have healed over 38,000 cleft children and provided countless training for our medical volunteers across the country and our team will continue to work together until we heal the last child born with facial deformities thanks to your continued support and encouragement.  We hope to welcome you to experience a mission of Operation Smile Vietnam whenever your time allows.

On behalf of the children and their families, our Advisory Board, Ambassadors and volunteers, please accept again our heartfelt thank you to your participation in this year special Gala Dinner and Charity Auction.
