At Operation Smile and at Sunland Elementary, we believe an investment in students is an investment in our future. Their focus on youth leadership has been an integral part of our organization since our inception. Both of our youth leaders today are our future. The only way Operation Smile will continue to make a lasting difference is if the culture of caring and humanity is transmitted to our youth to take that excitement and energy into our next era of smiles.


 

Operation Smile

8 Operations were funded this year.  Thank you Sunland Lions!

Operation Smile's family of medical volunteers, donors and staff are committed to not only reaching patientsbut breaking down obstacles to surgery through education, training, medical diplomacy and advocacy. They do that by working together with government agencies, local health systems, non-profit organizations and any like-minded partners to deliver care. All patients deserve comprehensive health care and a chance for greater wellbeing. 

Sunland Elementary third graders always put together a fundraiser to help raise money for Operation Smile. Our third graders are dedicated to changing the world; one act of kindness at a time.

These statistics are overwhelming. But at Operation Smile, they believe no child is a statistic.

Each patient deserves exceptional surgical care regardless of where they’re born or how much money their family makes.

Operation Smile recognizes the sacrifices families make to overcome barriers to accessing safe surgery.

Why They Exist

Everyone dreams of a world where no child suffers from lack of access to safe surgery. 

For too many families around the world, safe surgery is not an option.

At Operation Smile they believe every child deserves exceptional surgical care. They believe all children deserve to be treated as if they were our own.

That’s what drives each and every one of the volunteers and doctors: their global network of medical professionals, who donate hundreds of thousands of hours toward the care of children around the world each year, and their supporters who are moved every day to make a difference in the lives of children they’ve never met.

As long as there are children in the world who need our help, we should all do whatever it takes to give them the quality care they deserve. And at Sunland Elementary we do just that!
