About the club

The McGill University chapter of Operation Smile is dedicated to bringing smiles to the faces of children around the world by providing free surgeries for those born with cleft lips and cleft palates. Our mission is rooted in the belief that every child deserves access to safe, effective, and timely surgical care, regardless of their socio-economic background.

Driven by compassion and a commitment to service, our chapter aims to raise awareness about the global issue of cleft conditions and the profound impact they have on the lives of individuals and their families. Through fundraising initiatives, educational events, and volunteer opportunities, we strive to mobilize our community to support Operation Smile’s vital mission.

At the heart of our efforts lies the belief in the power of transformation – not just through surgical intervention but also through the restoration of dignity, confidence, and hope. We envision a world where every child can smile without inhibition, laugh without reservation, and live a life full of opportunity and joy.

With dedication, empathy, and collaboration, we pledge to uphold the values of inclusivity, integrity, and excellence as we work towards a future where cleft conditions are no longer barriers to a fulfilling and happy life. Together, we can make a difference, one smile at a time.
