Smile Train - The World's Leading Cleft Charity
Free cleft surgery, cleft treatment in India by Smile Train

Smile Train's Story

The original concept was an actual train that would travel around developing countries, providing free surgery for poor children and free training for doctors, leaving behind well-trained doctors, free equipment and self-sufficient communities.

Logistical issues made a physical train impossible but the original idea was so strong it didn’t need it.

Smile Train was founded in 1999 and began with one surgery in China performed by a local medical team. In nine years it has grown into the largest cleft organization in the world with hundreds of partners and programs in 80+ countries.

Since March 2000 we have provided free cleft surgery for over 1,000,000 children worldwide... and over 425,000 in India.
