We at Michael Foster Law are proud to support our nominated charity “Operation Smile UK”.
Thanks to the National Health Service, birth defects such as cleft palates and cleft lips are a thing of the past in the UK – but in developing countries they are still very much an issue. Across the world more than 200,000 children are born with a severe cleft condition every year — often unable to eat, speak, socialise or smile. Too often, these children are rejected by the people around them, afraid to go to school and ostracised by their communities. In many cases, parents simply can’t afford to give their children the surgery they desperately need.
With a presence in over 60 countries, and with the help of over 5,000 dedicated medical volunteers – Operation Smile is able to heal children’s smiles and bring hope for a better future.
We support Operation Smile in their campaign to help children live their lives with dignity. For those born with a cleft lip, cleft palate or other facial deformity, dignity begins with a smile.
