The hospitals where we work often don’t have the basic necessities to carry out successful surgery – equipment like oxygen monitors and anesthesia units. There might not be any antibiotics or pain medication. And essentials like sanitary masks, gloves and gowns are unavailable. But because of generous partners and donors who are moved to help children around the world, we’re able to bring everything needed for safe surgery – from sterile operating room towels to IV kits, anesthesia and much more.
Operation Smile adheres to standards set forth by the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as follows safety measures and universal equipment requirements.
Our corporate ambassadors
Over the years, Operation Smile has developed partnerships with leading corporations like Ethicon, Inc., from the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies. These companies have provided long-term support through generous donations of medical supplies, medical equipment, and other valuable products and services. Gift-in-kind contributors are more than just a valuable resource, they are an integral part of the Operation Smile family.
