Smile Foundation

We’re About Putting Smiles on the Faces of Children in South Africa!

The Smile Foundation is a South African NGO that assists children with any type of facial abnormality, to receive free corrective Plastic and Reconstructive surgery within South Africa.

We help children who suffer from treatable facial deformities such as Cleft Lip and Palate, burn victims, Moebius syndrome (facial paralysis) and other conditions.

We are currently based in 7 Academic Hospitals around South Africa. We are investing in the medical teams we work with, through a Skills Development programme, and we assist the hospitals by purchasing equipment for use by the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

To date, we have changed over 1000 lives.

Our Chief Patron Nelson Mandela’s wish is for us to assist as many children around South Africa as possible.
