Charitable organizations often struggle to find the money they need to continue their good work.
Not SmileTrain. Survival's been baked right in.
SmileTrain's mission is repairing cleft palates and lips in children around the world. Without them, these kids would never get these life-changing surgeries.
What's a cleft palate, anyway?
Your palate is the roof of your mouth, and a cleft occurs when the palate hasn't properly formed, leaving a split, a gap, in the palate.
