i believe WE ALL HAVE THE ABILITY TO CHANGE LIVES. I WANTED TO FIND A WAY TO HELP OTHERS THROUGH DOING WHAT I LOVE - SO FOR EVERY WEDDING I photograph, I WILL DONATE £50 TO SMILE TRAIN, a charity i hold close to my heart. Lets GIVE A CHILD A REASON TO SMILE AGAIN.
Every child born with a cleft - anywhere in the world - should have the opportunity to live a full and productive life. I've witnessed first hand how life changing this operation can be. Smile Train provides free cleft surgery and related treatment to hundreds of thousands of poor children in developing countries.
Clefts are a major problem in developing countries where millions of children are suffering. Most cannot eat or speak properly and aren’t allowed to attend school or hold a job. Being born with a cleft in a developing country is truly a curse. Every baby born in Uganda with a cleft is given the name Ajok which means literally, “cursed by God” with some newborns being killed or abandoned right after birth.
The good news is every single child with a cleft can be helped with surgery that costs less than £150 but will change their life forever.
