At Bankers Healthcare Group, we’re proud to support the international children’s medical charity Operation Smile, and help save the smiles of more than 100 children born with cleft lips and/or cleft palates.
Operation Smile mobilizes more than 5,000 volunteer medical professionals from over 80 countries to provide free reconstructive surgeries for children born with cleft deformities. These children often have trouble eating, speaking and socializing and are often outcasts from society.
We want to thank those who continue to join us in bringing about positive change to the following facts:
- Around the world, approximately 1 in every 600 children is born each year with a cleft lip and/or cleft palate.
- 1 in 10 children born with a cleft lip and/or cleft palate die before their 1st birthday.
- In as few as 45 minutes and with as little as $240, a single surgery can heal a child’s smile.
BHG is dedicated to donating a minimum of $25,000 to Operation Smile through a portion of proceeds from funded loan transactions.
The world always looks brighter from behind a smile. To help make the world brighter for children born with cleft deformities, you can also make a direct donation or sign up to become a volunteer below.
