Cleft lip and palate is the number one birth defect in most developing countries. More than 170,000 babies are born every year in developing countries with a cleft lip and/or palate. The vast majority of these children will never receive surgery.

Although it is a birth defect, cleft lip and palate is an economic problem not a medical one.

In developing countries, the vast majority of children born with clefts never receive surgery and the only reason for this is because they are poor.

Children in developing countries suffering with unrepaired clefts can be helped with a simple, surgical procedure that takes as little as 45 minutes and costs as little as $250.
Since its beginning in 1999 Smile Train has provided more than 825,000 free surgeries for children who would otherwise never have received it.
