First medical mission in Democratic Republic of the Congo

Since 2009, Operation Smile has conducted medical programs in Kinshasa and Lubumbashi, the two largest cities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Currently, Operation Smile is focusing not only on our ability to treat cleft lip and cleft palate but also to increase the surgical capacity of the country overall.

Over the last six years, Operation Smile has provided surgical care to more than 1,000 patients in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
