Dr. Dan Pyo: Inspired to help children
After 10 medical missions across the globe, Dr. Pyo says the same thing keeps him coming back to help more children.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate
At Operation Smile we believe every child suffering from cleft lip or cleft palate deserves exceptional surgical care.
Since 1982, Operation Smile has provided hundreds of thousands of free surgeries for children from more than 60 countries.
Our medical volunteers span six continents and provide our patients with specialized care so they can live healthy and productive lives.
A child’s cleft lip or cleft palate can be repaired for as little as $240 and in as few as 45 minutes, but your gift is more than a surgery. All of our supporters give renewed hope to children and families around the world.
