Why join Operation Smile's London Marathon team?

Children born with cleft conditions have difficulties breathing, eating and speaking. In the countries where we work, they have no access to treatment, often leaving them malnourished, bullied, and isolated – without any hope for their future.

Thanks to you, children will receive the surgery they so desperately need to live a healthy, happy life.

Join our team now and you’ll change their lives forever, giving them a new smile and a new hope for a better, brighter future.
