The Smile Train is dedicated to helping the millions of children in the world who suffer from cleft lip and palate through free surgery for children, free training for doctors, and research to find a cure.
The free surgery and related treatment that The Smile Train sponsors is performed by a local medical team in a local hospital in a developing country. This “teach a man to fish” strategy builds in-country capacity while helping very poor but very proud communities become self-sufficient, one smile at a time.
Since 2000, The Smile Train has provided free cleft surgery to more than 325,000 children who would otherwise never receive it. They have helped train tens of thousands of medical professionals and have established programs in over 75 countries.
Coldwell Banker Premier Real Estate and its affiliated companies have supported The Smile Train year after year by establishing “Smile Train Month” in each office during the entire month of August. To date, Coldwell Banker Premier Real Estate and its family of companies have raised enough money to perform over 80 surgeries.
