Who is Smile Foundation?

Smile Foundation is a South African non-governmental organisation with a holistic health care vision for children with facial conditions. Smile Foundation together with the country’s Academic Hospitals work together to put the smile back onto children’s faces with corrective reconstructive surgery and treatments.

We help children in need of surgery for treatable facial anomalies such as cleft lip, cleft palate, nose and ear conditions, facial paralysis (Moebius Syndrome), burns and other facial conditions.
Even though we’re a charity for children, we understand that parents want nothing more than to help their children in need and cannot do so due to financial restrictions. We aim to positively increase the quality of life for South Africa’s disadvantaged families by encouraging, informing and educating the parents throughout the process.

We are currently based in seven of the best Academic Hospitals in South Africa. We continually support our teams of qualified, compassionate medical staff by investing in further skills development programmes, as well as the purchasing of much needed medical equipment for the departments specialising in plastic and reconstructive surgery within these hospitals.

Our chief patron, the late Nelson Mandela had passionately supported Smile Foundation and his wish was that we reach as many children in need as possible. The late Madiba was proudly associated with our charity as he believed that the future of our nation is in the hands of our children.

Donating to the Smile Foundation charity in South Africa will prove to be truly rewarding and even more so for the children and families that you will positively impact with your generous donations. Every little life you affect is a smile won and worn on the face of a beautiful child with a future filled with many more.

At Smile Foundation we believe in the future of our children – charity is just one of the many avenues we use to make the joy visible through the smiles of our nation’s children.
