In 2016, Site for Smiles and Smarts began a partnership with the Association of Pakistani Physicians of North America (APPNA) to fund cleft and lip palate surgeries for impoverished children in Pakistan.

A facial deformity that is often left untreated, palates have been the cause for bullying and discrimination against patients, resulting in significantly-higher levels of depression and low self-esteem among affected youth. 

In a program called, "Providing Smiles Through Smiles and Smarts", Site for Smiles and Smarts continues to raise funds in order to provide surgeries to correct facial deformities, restoring confidence within patients.

 

In 2017, Site for Smiles and Smarts and APPNA began collaborating to fund corneal transplant surgeries, in addition to palate surgeries. In doing so, Site for Smiles and Smarts has replenished the gift of sight to dozens of blind patients across Pakistan, allowing them to continue their education.
