About Operation Smile

Registered charity number: 1091316

Operation Smile is an international medical charity providing life-changing, safe, effective reconstructive surgery and comprehensive care for children and adults living with untreated cleft conditions.

Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft condition – often unable to eat, speak, socialise or breathe. In the UK, thanks to the NHS, a baby’s cleft lip or cleft palate will be repaired in the first year of their life. However, in many developing countries cleft surgery is either too expensive or may not be available. Too often, these children are rejected by people around them, afraid to go to school and ostracised by their communities.

That’s where Operation Smile comes in. Since 1982, – with the help of over 5,000 dedicated medical volunteers – it has provided over 350,000 free, safe surgical procedures to children and adults in over 60 countries, giving each one a new start in life.

Operation Smile goes to great lengths to ensure that every patient treated receives the highest standard of care, providing access to free nutrition intervention, dental care, speech therapy and counselling where needed. Operation Smile believes that all children deserve to live their lives with dignity.

You can donate your old car to Operation Smile and do something good for the environment and something incredible for a child with a cleft condition and an uncertain future.

“Operation Smile UK would like to say a heartfelt thank you to the team at Charity Car and its generous customers who have so lovingly recycled their used cars in this unique and effective way, raising thousands of pounds for us. Your old car donations have helped change the lives of children with cleft conditions around the world and we can only continue our vital work with the support provided by partners like Charity Car.”
