Did you know that Campus Book Rentals donates to Operation Smile with each and every textbook rented and are donating over 1,000 life saving cleft lip surgeries this year to children in need. How awesome is that?!
Operation Smile is an international children’s medical charity that performs safe, effective cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, and delivers postoperative and ongoing medical therapies to children in low and middle income countries.One in ten born with these conditions die before their first birthdays. Often unable to eat, speak, socialize, or smile.
Fact #1 Did you know every three minutes a child is born with a cleft palate
Operation Smile is the volunteer-based medical charity providing free cleft surgeries. Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers — has provided more than 3.5 million comprehensive patient evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities. They train local doctors in developing countries and strengthen healthcare systems so more children in some of the poorest areas in the world can be treated.
