CLAPAI, Proudly Supporting World Smile Day. Here we reproduce an appeal by Operation Smile Ireland.
“Operation Smile Ireland launched its first ‘World Smile Day‘ national collections campaign on September 17th in Dublin. We had many supporters on hand including rugby star, Ian Madigan, CLAPAI representative Sean Haughey, and Professor Triona Sweeney and Anne McGillivary who many of you will know from the Cleft team at Temple Street (both volunteers of Operation Smile).
