What we do

Our Mission

Help improve the lives of children in the Philippines born with cleft lip & cleft palate deformities

The Children

The families often travel considerable distances to access the medical missions. Here are some of their stories & pictures.


Smile for ME is a not for profit surgical charity run by the team of volunteers that undertake the surgical mission.

The devoted team has now created its own medical charity to continue on the work begun by Maureen & the team to continue to transform children’s lives.
