Children who suffer with severe cleft palate will be given the gift of a beautiful smile through corrective surgery! This gift extends far beyond new smiles; the corrective surgeries offer lifelong health benefits to children struggling to eat and breathe properly.
This is a life-altering Christmas gift that will be a blessing for a lifetime! Together with our friends and partners, LIFE has provided surgeries throughout the years in cases where children with the most severe cases of cleft lips and cleft palates had no hope for medical care. Without corrective surgeries, many children face lifelong difficulties. Some even face malnutrition due to complications caused by cleft palate.
Devastatingly, parents and families in developing countries will often abandon these little ones because of their facial disfigurements and health issues. Now in our 12th year of the Christmas Shoes and Smiles campaign, we are so thankful for your help in changing lives with corrective surgeries for cleft palates and lips. Through your generous gifts, you can help give a child a new smile this Christmas – a gift that will drastically improve their quality of life!
Your gift will be used exclusively for the exempt purposes of LIFE Outreach International. Gifts are considered to be without restriction unless explicitly stipulated by the donor. If funds exceed the specific need of a project, or due to unforeseen circumstances the project cannot be completed, they will be used for similar purposes or other outreaches of LIFE (Ezra 7:17-18) such as LIFE Centers, Mission Feeding, LIFE TODAY television and Water for LIFE. LIFE Outreach International is a longtime member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).
