Rating: 5

I have been a member of Operation Smile's Utah Chapter Board for only less than a year, but have been very familiar with the organization for many years. I have been so touched and moved by the unbelievable change and blessing that comes into the life of each child who has been the recipient of an Operation Smile surgery. Where once belittled, embarrassed and estranged because of a cleft lip or palate, these children's lives are forever changed for the better due to the generous donations of friends from around the world. I can, without reservation, wholeheartedly endorse Operation Smile and thank you in advance for your support.
