Nutrigold’s Work with Operation Smile


Nutrigold give substantial funds to a varied group of charities to help them in their ongoing care to meet the needs of humans, animals, and the environment. One charity in particular that we would like to highlight to you for the incredible work they do is Operation Smile, this is an organisation we are delighted to be able to support with financial contributions as a result of your purchasing our products.

In 1982, founders Dr William (Bill) P. Magee, Jr., a plastic surgeon, and his wife Kathleen (Kathy), a nurse and clinical social worker, travelled to the Philippines with a group of medical volunteers to provide cleft lip and cleft palate surgery. They saw first-hand the overwhelming need for safe, effective surgical care, when around 300 hopeful families arrived seeking help for their children. Sadly, the team of medical volunteers could only treat 40 of them, so Bill and Kathy made a promise to return in the future – and Operation Smile was born.

Operation Smile started as a family-led organisation but now has a global footprint, providing world-class cleft care in more than 30 countries helped by thousands of highly skilled medical volunteers. They are dedicated to improving the health and lives of children with cleft conditions, through access to safe. free, effective surgery and comprehensive cleft care. We share the charities vision that all children deserve access to high-quality cleft care, regardless of where they live. It is estimated that there are currently 5 million people with cleft conditions living beyond the reach of existing hospital care – that’s millions of children who need our help to live the happy, healthy lives they deserve.

Without treatment, cleft conditions can cause severe health problems which can become fatal. Children who survive often face years of painful bullying and social isolation – that’s why we’re committed to improving access to safe surgery so that it reaches those who need it most.

As the organisation enters its next decade, they have made a commitment to increase access to care for 1 million patients who need cleft care and other essential surgeries, particularly those in remote areas. With a global network of more than 6000 medical volunteers from across 67 countries, Operation Smile delivers safe surgery, comprehensive cleft care and training programmes all around the world.

Nutrigold is proud to support Operation Smile’s vision to create a world where no child suffers from lack of access to safe surgical care. To show our support, we are pledging 15% of all proceeds from Children’s Multi, Vitamin B12, Iron Plus, LGG and Pregnancy Support Formula throughout December to support World Smile Month. Thanks to your support and faith in our products we can continue supporting Operation Smile’s vision. As a business committed to sustainability and charitable donations, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your custom this year which has enabled us to support our chosen charities. We wish you all a very happy and healthy Christmas 2022 and look forward to assisting you in seeking  the very best in food supplements for your health and wellbeing in 2023!
