Operation Smile and the Cleft Lip and Palate Association of Ireland are partnering to celebrate World Smile Day 2015 on Friday, 2nd October. We will be running several bucket collections around the country.
It has been a very busy time for the Association since the fire that destroyed our entire stock of support material in Store-It . We would like to extend a BIG ‘Thank You’ to so many for the support, encouragement and donations made to date.
We are making progress on both the fundraising score and the preliminary work regarding ordering more materials.
Our Chair, Georgina Wade, was interviewed by Damien O’Reilly (standing in for Joe Duffy) on the Liveline Show on RTÉ Radio One on Tuesday, 5th May. George spoke about the recent fire at the storage facility in Ballymount and the consequences for the Association and those we serve. She also spoke about the wider work of the Association and cleft lip and palate. George was followed briefly by Vicky who spoke highly of the support she has received from the Association.
We must extend our sincere thanks to RTÉ and the Liveline Programme for the coverage they afforded the Association in its time of need and the time given to us to speak about cleft lip and palate and the role of the Association in supporting parents and those born with the condition. You can listen to the interview here:
Disaster struck the Association today when the the storage unit in Ballymount where we have all our maternity packs, leaflets, bottles and family day stuff was destroyed by fire… the cost and time it will take to replace our stock is frightening.
We have to quickly raise funds to reprint and replace the lot so we can keep maternity hospitals stocked and parents supplied… please, please contribute if you can and help us replenish our stock.
To help, visit our Donate page and contribute if you can, what you can. No sum is too small. And Thank You.
When: Thursday 27th November at 8.00pm
