BJANA join hands with Smile Train to make Bihar Jharkhand cleft-free

BJANA is pleased to announce the Smiletrain as it’s new charity partner which will be a new global addi-
tion to our charity effort and help our communities back home in Bihar and Jharkhand.

Smiletrain is an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem:

cleft lip and palate. Millions of children in developing countries with unrepaired clefts live in shame, but

more importantly, have difficulty eating, breathing and speaking. Cleft repair surgery is simple, and the

transformation is immediate. Smiletrain’s sustainable model provides training and funding to empower

local doctors in 85+ developing countries to provide 100% – free cleft repair surgery in their communities.

This year Smiletrain and the Bihar Jharkhand Association of North America (BJANA) have joined forces to

help children suffering from cleft lip and palate in Bihar and Jharkhand. India is Smiletrain’s largest pro-
gram, performing over 413,000 free, high-quality cleft repair surgeries since its inception. However, with

an estimated 37,069 cleft births in India each year, there is still much work to be done.

In as little as 45 minutes and $250, a child can receive a new smile and a new chance at life. We hope you

will join Smile Train and BJANA in their efforts. So help change the world one smile at a time. BJANA is

pleased to match your donation for a smile. For your $125 donation, BJANA will match $125 to a total

program limit of $1500. Please contact BJANA team for detail at contact@bjana.org. You can always do-
nate for your choice.
