Across the globe, Smile Train has a sustainable system focused on solving the problems brought about by cleft lip and palate. Smile Train’s global footprint allows them to partner with local health organizations to provide proper cleft care treatment at no cost to patients.

In the Philippines, Smile Train has continued to provide comprehensive cleft care even during the pandemic. With the launch of the first Filipino mobile Smile Train Speech App and the Virtual Telehealth Program, Smile Train enabled Filipino patients to join speech therapy sessions from the safety of their homes. Despite lockdown restrictions, patients still have access to Smile Train’s services and are still able to schedule surgeries in partner hospitals.
