In 2009, Smile Train awarded a grant to Cleftworks Association which provided funding for free cleft surgery for 50 patients. Located in Davao City, this group works to provide surgeries for underprivileged children born with complex facial deformities. In their end of year report, the group describes the partnership by saying, "Smile Train’s grant greatly supplemented the cleft program’s funding for surgical treatment cost. It eased the physician’s burden to look for treatment funding for poor patients and concentrate on surgical cleft care, dental access and speech counselling by competent specialists. The attached document shares the stories and before and after pictures of three patients helped by this grant, Angel, Jonathan and Christopher.
