About The Face Charity

The face charity is a UK based organisation of an international project known as Operation HOPE (Helping Other People Excel). It was initially implemented by a small group of American Filipinos, of whom some were involved with operation Smile. In 1990, they established a group called PhilIppine American Group of Educators & Surgeons, PAGES, of which their primary goal is to provide free cleft lip & palate repairs to children within the Philippines annually.

Currently our main aim is to support PAGES and provide funds to buy much needed equipment & drugs. In the future we hope to expand our work, help projects in other developing countries & invite students/ trainees to learn about our work first hand.
