Smile and world smiles with you

Jan 17, 2011

The song says that when you’re smiling, the whole world smiles with you. But would the world smile with those who were born with cleft lips and palates?

For children with facial deformities, smiling can be impossible to do, both physically and emotionally. They often become outcasts because of the way they look.

Every year, one in every 600 children is born with facial deformities which can be corrected with a simple and inexpensive surgery.

Operation Smile works with local doctors and contributors to provide free reconstructive facial surgeries. Amway has found a great partner in Operation Smile over the years. We’ve supported missions in Thailand, China, South Africa and Vietnam over the years

The Amway for Thai Society Foundation has organized 13 missions that treated nearly 1,500 children. Amway Vietnam has organized 5 missions and treated more than 500 children. Amway China helped develop media advertising to promote Operation Smile missions and Amway South Africa provides oral care products along with monetary support.

And what would a One by One project be without employees and distributors volunteering their time to help. Whether they are organizing, helping to ease anxious and nervous parents, or playing with the children before the surgery, they do their best to  bring smiles back to their beautiful faces … so the world will smile with them too.
