Nothing will ever come close to witnessing a child smiling for the very first time.

When cleft deformities occur in Ireland, they are usually corrected within the first few months of a child being born. But in the developing world, the medical care simply isn’t available.

An operation takes as little as 45 minutes and costs just €180. This is all it takes to give a child like Ngan a smile.

Here’s what your generosity could achieve:

·         €20 could pay for the antibiotics needed to protect ten children from infection following an operation.

·         €50 could help to equip a surgeon with the essentials they need to keep a child safe during a procedure.

·         €180 would be enough to pay for an entire operation, changing a child like Ngan’s life forever.


Please give a child like Ngan a smile and a chance of a better future.

“Every child that has a facial deformity is our responsibility. If we don’t take care of that child, there’s no guarantee that anyone else will.”
