The mission of the Yemen Smile miracle smile charity was focused primarily on cleft lip and palate children ,who would otherwise never have a chance to smile again. In 2010,after many years of success, it was invited to partner with the Smile Train, a non profit,non governmental charity that helps over 87 countries with free cleft surgeries.
The work of the cleft charity goes on despite obstacles,threats of terrorism,wars and difficult terrains in some countries.
There are over ten million cleft children worldwide.
Number of Yemeni Arab cleft lip and palate children sponsored for surgery by the US Smile Train from January 2010- 2015.. till the war in March 2015
This is a HUGE miracle because the surgeries and smiles were made under the shadow of the gun during the clashes in Arabia. We almost got killed on several occasions. I am just glad to be alive and that the kids got a second chance at life from the US Smile Train programmes.
