Operation Smile is a worldwide charity that provides surgical and rehabilitative services to repair facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate. They build public and private partnerships that advocate for sustainable healthcare systems for children and families. These deformities are not simply physical conditions. Many children with these facial deformities have breathing, eating, and speaking problems due to their condition. In addition, such children are often ostracized by their community and are unable to live normal lives.

The objectives of Fredonia's Operation Smile Club are to raise money for the non-profit international organization, to raise awareness about childhood facial deformities, and relay information about the life changing services that the national organization provides. 

Club activities include annual speakers that present on various topics pertaining to the care of children with cleft lip and palate as well as representatives from the National organization that discuss mission opportunities for students and providers.  In addition, our club holds various fund raising events each year in order to contribute to Operation Smile.
