I hope this message finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to you today to introduce an extraordinary project that holds the potential to bring smiles and transform lives across the globe. Our initiative, "100 Smiles in 100th Mission," aims to make a significant impact by providing cleft lip and palate surgeries to children in need.

Cleft lip and palate conditions are not just physical challenges; they also pose emotional and social barriers for those affected. The inability to smile confidently and communicate effectively can hinder a child's development and integration into society. It is our mission to change this narrative and ensure that no child's potential is limited due to their physical appearance.

Project Overview: "100 Smiles in 100th Mission" is a targeted effort to perform 100 cleft surgeries in our 100th mission. These surgeries will be carried out in partnership with skilled medical professionals and hospitals renowned for their expertise in the field. By addressing this vital medical need, we aim to bring joy and transformation to the lives of these children, giving them a new lease on life and a chance to lead fulfilling, confident, and healthy futures.

Why Support Us:

  1. Impactful Change: Our project addresses an immediate and tangible need by providing life-changing surgeries to children who lack access to such care.
  2. Global Collaboration: "100 Smiles in 100th Mission" fosters collaboration among medical professionals, donors, and communities worldwide, reinforcing the spirit of GlobalGiving and empathy.
  3. Empowerment: By contributing to our cause, you empower children to overcome their challenges and build brighter futures.
  4. Long-lasting Effect: The surgeries not only improve physical health but also boost self-esteem, leading to improved social interactions and personal growth.

Project Overview: Cleft lip and palate is a common congenital disability that affects many children worldwide. The condition not only affects the physical appearance of children but also affects their speech and hearing abilities. Children with clefts often face social stigmatization and discrimination, making it difficult for them to integrate into society. Our project aimed to provide free cleft surgeries to children from underprivileged communities who do not have access to quality healthcare facilities. 

Project Achievements: With your generous support, we are proud to announce that we successfully completed 100 surgeries within the timeframe, bringing smiles to the faces of 100 children and their families. Our team of expert surgeons and healthcare professionals worked tirelessly to ensure that every child received the necessary care and support throughout the surgery and recovery process. Another 100 children will be provided with best quality care.

We are pleased to share that all the surgeries were successful, and the children are now able to lead normal lives, free from the physical and social challenges that come with clefts. We believe that this project has made a significant impact on the lives of these children and their families.

Project Challenges: During the project, we faced several challenges, including limited resources, staffing, and infrastructure. However, with your support, we were able to overcome these challenges and provide quality healthcare to the children.

Future Plans: We plan to continue our efforts to provide healthcare services to underprivileged communities, particularly those affected by congenital disabilities such as cleft lip and palate. We hope to expand our reach and provide our services to more children and families in the future.

In conclusion, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to our donors at GlobalGiving for their support towards our project "100 Smiles in 100 Days". With your help, we were able to provide life-changing surgeries to 100 children, and we are confident that this project has made a significant impact on their lives and the communities they come from. We hope to continue our efforts to provide quality healthcare services to those in need and look forward to your continued support in the future.

It is estimated that 1 in 700 children in India is born with this Cleft deformity. Every year around 35,000 infants are born with this painful yet correctable condition.

1 in 10 such infant born with cleft don’t make it to 1st birthday due to acute malnutrition and other medical complications. We at Mission Smile are committed to change 3500 such lives annually and seek the partial support and funding to reach this target.

Cleft deformities deprive children of a life of dignity and opportunity. Despite cleft being a medical condition; it has serious social and emotional implications in the life of the concerned child. There have been known cases of abandoning, disowning, selling, isolation and ostracisation of children with cleft. Moreover, there are cases of school dropouts because of ridicule or lack of friends mingling with them or any other reasons that might cause mental stress and trauma preventing cleft children from attending schools. This ultimately results in their ending up unemployed or taking up menial jobs in the future.

Though cleft is a corrective deformity, yet access to quality care and treatment is very low. Without adequate treatment, these children struggle to speak, eat, and participate in society. Trapped within their own bodies, they miss education and livelihood opportunities, and remain in the periphery of their society, deprived of basic human dignity.

On the positive side this is a deformity which has a proven solution, a solution which can take as little as a 45-minute surgical procedure at the right facility with trained medical personnel.

We succesfully operated 3 siblings from remote village of NE India. Family thanks each of your supporters for helping them.
