Bringing Smiles to the Amazon with Yaçuri

Smile Train

For so long, children with clefts from indigenous Amazonian communities had nowhere to turn for care. Our local partner Instituto Yaçuri da Amazônia is dedicated to changing that. With a multi-disciplinary team whose skills are matched only by their passion, Yaçuri is bringing not just cleft surgery, but nutritional support, speech therapy, and so much else to these children in need, helping them to not just live, but thrive.
