Review for Alliance For Smiles, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A friend of mine has been tirelessly active with Alliance for Smiles for many years, and I’ve always admired her passion for this cause. During their missions, they post updates, and before and after photos of the children with cleft abnormalities. When you see the transformation of these children and adults after their operations, it’s hard not to be profoundly moved. The life-changing work Alliance for Smiles does is truly awesome.

Their patients can now enjoy normal lives, are able to eat, will be understood when they speak, and will be protected from the many life-threatening problems they would have faced without this operation.

But it doesn’t end there. Their patients continue to need dental care, orthodontia, and speech therapy, and Alliance for Smiles has established treatment centers in many areas to follow-up the work after the missions are over. They train and monitor local health care providers about the needs of cleft lip and palate patients and assist when necessary.

Of all the for non-profit organizations out there, few could boast that 94% of all donated funds go directly to those in need. The Doctors, Nurses, and everyone on the team generously volunteer their time and expertise to help.

So, after observing for so long, I asked my friend what I could do to help. And I’m excited to say I’m going on a mission in October!

Your donations can help transform lives! Please consider donating anything you can today.
