Operation Smile Vietnam

Operation Smile Vietnam (OSV) is an NGO set up in 1989, as part of Operation Smile International dedicated to providing free treatment to children and adults suffering from cleft lips and cleft palates. Sika Vietnam has joined Operation Smile Vietnam to heal children’s smiles and bring them new lives and a new future with 100.000 USD for one year.

Thanks to the Romuald Burkard Foundation, Operation Smile Vietnam was able to sponsor 11 local missions during March, 2010 to July, 2013 with offered surgery to 798 Vietnamese children who were born with cleft lip and palate.

In 2015 Sika Vietnam - together with Operation Smile Vietnam – is implementing a program of 5 surgical missions throughout the country in order to bring new smiles and better lives to those people.
