Smile Asia is a global alliance of charities working together to treat facial deformities, including cleft lip and palate. We raise standards of medical care by creating opportunities of collaborative learning and exchange of best practices.
We deliver free surgical care through medical missions and outreach centres. These initiatives build trust and bridge cultures among different communities. With activities across 20 countries and territories, Smile Asia member charities have collectively delivered over 75,000 surgeries across Asia till date.
The Smile Mission Ltd is the International Secretariat of Smile Asia. It is a Singapore registered charity and adheres to local regulatory requirements. It aims to instil a sense of volunteerism among Singapore residents and create overseas volunteering opportunities. The affiliation to Smile Asia helps The Smile Mission Ltd to further its own objectives with greater ease.
EXPLAINING A MEDICAL MISSION
On a typical surgical mission, a team of 35 credentialed medical professionals (nurses, surgeons, anaesthetists, paediatricians, dentists etc.) from around the world travel to a partner country to treat children over a period of 7 days. More than 80 lives are transformed.
