Hospital Leaflets

This Ramadan, hospitals and clinics across the UAE are coming together to join Operation Smile’s “Light The Way” campaign.

By displaying informative leaflets about Operation Smile, these partnering organizations are providing an incredible opportunity for patients and families, who can’t afford cleft care and have insufficient insurance coverage, to learn more about the free cleft care offered through Operation Smile.

Cookie Campaign

Partnering hotels in the UAE are selling sets of Ramadan cookies to benefit Operation Smile and to honour of one of our UAE patients, Ericka, who, after receiving treatment with Operation Smile UAE, is now employed in her dream job as a professional pastry chef!

For every limited edition set of Ramadan cookies sold, 10 AED will be donated to Operation Smile UAE to provide more patients, like Ericka, with the opportunity to receive life-changing surgery which they would otherwise not be able to afford.

You can read more about Ericka’s story here.
