Imagine a life-time of not being able to smile while, also, being bullied and tormented because of the way you looked due to a facial difference. This was the life of 25-year-old Enok of Ghana and the life many children face when born with a cleft lip or cleft palate. For 36 years, Operation Smile has been helping to spread smiles worldwide by providing safe, effective and timely surgery to children and adults born with a cleft lip or cleft palate.

 

 Join Operation Smile in the celebration of World Smile Day on Friday, Oct. 5 by spreading Enok’s new smile story to your audience on your blog or social media channels. World Smile Day is an awareness day held every year to spread smiles through acts of kindness. By sharing Enok’s story, Operation Smile hopes to spread more smiles and awareness to help more people like Enok gain the smile and dignity they deserve.
