Many children are turned away because of a lack of funds. You can change that. Operation Smile in Ethiopia needs volunteers to help raise funds and awareness so that more children will receive the gift of life-changing surgery.
If you are currently a student and are interested in joining or starting an Operation Student Club then please visit the Student Programs section
