India Update

This past year Smile Train completed 45,0000 surgeries in India. Next year, in conjunction with our 183 partner hospitals, we are hoping to perform over 49,000 surgeries. In addition, we are in our third cycle of the India Smile Grant program. This year, we have 73 participating hospitals and will distribute $125,986 to some of our poorest patients and their families. In the coming months several screenings of the documentary Smile Pinki will take place across India. We are very excited to bring this Oscar winning film back to where it was created!
