OPERATION CLEFT

GIFTING A “SMILE FOR LIFE” IN YOUR WILL

 

Operation Cleft has changed the lives of more than 10,275 children in Bangladesh since it started in 2005. By providing these children with the opportunity to have the cleft repair surgery they need, we are not just giving them a smile, we are giving them a happy future.

Leaving a bequest is an extraordinary act of generosity and kindness. By remembering Operation Cleft in your will, you are contributing to Operation Cleft’s vision for the poor and underprivileged in Bangladesh born with cleft defects – gifting them a “Smile for Life.”

A truly incredible act, a bequest to Operation Cleft is a gift that gives a life changing opportunity and helps Rotary’s work live on.
