Operation Smile is a non-profit organization that raises money to provide reconstructive surgeries for children born with cleft lip and cleft palate in third-world countries. At Rutgers, through our continuous fundraising events and efforts, we raise proceeds that all go directly to the headquarters of Operation Smile. As a chapter, we hope to increase awareness of this cause as we work to help the organization change the lives of many children, one smile at a time. We aim to broaden student awareness of the international medical needs in developing nations, provide a framework for student participation in organized activities to support the medical needs of developing countries, and provide unselfish service to the less fortunate.
