Furniture World News on

Surya recently announced the donation of 300 operations for children with unrepaired clefts in need through Smile Train.  Smile Train is dedicated to providing cleft lip and palate surgeries to children in developing countries.  Surya donated one child’s surgery on the behalf of their top 300 customers.  Smile Train has challenged other donors to match Surya’s generous gift which will result in twice as many surgeries.  

“In these tough economic times, the donation from Surya means more to us now than ever before”, said Delois Greenwood, Executive Director.  “With their support we will be able to help more children and provide more smiles than we ever thought possible.  We are honored that Surya choose to support Smile Train this holiday season.  Working together, we will give hundreds of children a second chance at life.” 

The donation was made in the name of Surya’s top customers in 2010.  “Although we are a for-profit company, our mission is to serve our community in bringing a positive change.  With our customers continued support, I am very confident that we can do more to contribute to children’s future next year,” said Satya Tiwari, President of Surya.

Smile Train (www.smiletrain.org) is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization headquartered in New York, NY.  They have offices located in China, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Philippines, Russia, and Vietnam. Smile Train is dedicated to helping the millions of children in the world who suffer from cleft lip and palate through free surgery for children and free training for doctors. The free surgery and related treatment that Smile Train sponsors is performed by a local medical team in a local hospital in a developing country. This “teach a man to fish” strategy builds in-country capacity while helping very poor, but very proud, communities become self-sufficient, one smile at a time. Since 2000, Smile Train has provided free cleft surgery to hundreds of thousands of children who would otherwise never receive it.
