Operation Smile's mission is simple: Make the children of the world grin. The not-for-profit volunteer group provides reconstructive surgery and health-care services to children and young adults suffering from facial deformities such as cleft lips, cleft palates, burns, and tumors. Operation Smile has assisted more than 120,000 patients in 25 developing countries and the US. The organization also provides educational fellowship programs in craniofacial surgery and runs a physician training program. Operation Smile was founded in 1982 by Dr. William Magee and his wife, Kathleen, a nurse and clinical social worker. A plan to merge with Smile Train in 2011 is being called off due to donor opposition.
