Target demographics: Free to Smile Foundation targets poor and underprivileged children and adolescents through comprehensive, quality surgical and dental services.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Free to Smile Foundation performs an average of 35-55 cleft lip or palate surgeries on each surgical mission, and provides dental care for 100-200 patients on each dental mission. From February 2011 to February 2012, direct beneficiaries exceeded 500 children and adolescents.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Help organize or host fundraising events, hold a drive to secure needed supplies (see our "wish list" at http://freetosmile.org/wish_list.php), provide office and administrative assistance.

Geographic areas served: Current mission sites include Guatemala, Tibet, Cambodia, and Niger.

Programs: Our team of doctors and volunteers donate all services to patients at no charge. To ensure all donated money is used most efficiently to help the children in need, we pay our own airfares to our mission sites in Guatemala, Cambodia, Tibet, and Niger.

Mission:
Free to Smile Foundation is dedicated to supporting and sustaining comprehensive, quality surgical and dental services to poor and underprivileged children and adolescents throughout the world. To this end, our volunteers and partner organizations will provide free surgical, dental and educational care for all that are served by the foundation across the globe.
Results:
Free to Smile Foundation brings together individuals with a common vision who take action and do what we can to make the world a better place. We have worked hard to forge strong partnerships with local organizations at our mission sites in Guatemala, Tibet, Cambodia, and Niger, and look forward to expanding our reach through the support of friends, donors, and volunteers.
