Brazil Update

This year Smile Train completed 1,705 surgeries in Brazil. Working with our 27 partner sites we estimate that we will perform 2,000 surgeries in the upcoming year. From September 10th to 13th, The International Congress on Cleft Lip and Palate and Related Craniofacial Anomalies will take place in Fortaleza. 150 Smile Train Partners are expected to attend this event which will focus on the latest cleft care techniques.
