Walking for smiles

Story


 My nephew Arthur was born with a cleft palate, diagnosed at birth and since then him and his family have received incredible support from Operation Smile UAE and we are so thankful for them. 


They hold a special place in my heart so I’d like to raise awareness and donations for this charity and the amazing work they do. 


880AED will help provide surgery for a child in need thanks to generous contributions of medical professionals who volunteer their time, as well as corporations that donate critical supplies and equipment necessary for safe surgery. 


 I will be “walking for smiles” for the month of March :

Wk 1- 15000 steps / 15 flights a day

Wk 2 - 20000 steps/ 20 flights a day

Wk 3- 25000 steps/ 25 flights a day

Wk 4 - 30000 steps/30 flights a day


Any donation, big or small will really help Operation Smile UAE bring a smile to a child with a cleft condition.
