Our Mission 


At Operation Smile Australia we believe all people deserve access to safe, quality surgical care.  

Our mission is to send Australian and NZ medical volunteers to low-income countries to provide free surgeries for children who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. 

For as little as $250 a child can receive surgery and their life is changed forever. 

Operation Smile Australia currently receives no Government funding and relies on individuals, organisations and Foundations to continue its work providing life-changing surgeries.  

We are a registered charity with DGR (deductible gift recipient) status.  All donations to our organisation are tax deductible.
