About Operation Smile UAE

Operation Smile UAE was established in January 2011. We hold several fundraising events in the UAE throughout the year to raise much needed funds for overseas missions and to increase awareness. We have hosted missions in the UAE since 2017. Operation Smile UAE has been an established charity with the Ministry of Community Development (formerly Ministry of Social Affairs) since January 2011.

Operation Smile UAE is run by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers.
