There are many individuals out there who feel like every child should be treated like their own. No child, no matter where they are from or no matter their economic status, should have to deal with health problems that can be fixed through basic surgeries. This is exactly how individuals who work with the organization Operation Smile feel. This organization was established more than 30 years ago by a doctor and his wife who were working in the Philippines. They saw that many children and young people who had cleft lips and palates were not able to get access to medical care to correct these problems. They established this charitable organization in order to provide free surgical procedures to fix these problems. The organization has grown over the last 30 years. Now, there are volunteer medical staff who live in more than 80 countries and they go on medical missions that help children everywhere.
