New Smile Train Partner Hospital in Bangladesh
Smile Train welcomes Avi Cenna Hospital as our latest partner hospital in Bangladesh.
An official Inaugural Ceremony of Smile Train Avi Cenna Hospital Cleft Project was hosted at the hospital in early December. The large number of attendees included hospital staff, cleft patients, parents, the general public and media. Our newest partner hospital warmly welcomed Ms. Renu Mehta, Program Director, South Asia, Smile Train who announced the new partnership as well as the necessity for free, safe, high quality cleft care in the region, the goals of the partnership and the dramatic life-changes that free cleft surgery provides. Speeches were also delivered by Dr. Ashraful Islam, Chairman and Dr. Mahbubul Hannan, Bangladesh Country Manager Smile Train.

Smile Train looks forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Avi Cenna Hospital to help the poorest of the poor in Bangladesh. By continuing to expand our reach beyond the capital city of Dhaka, we are able to reach even more poor children suffering with unrepaired clefts.
