Happy Friday, and happy World Smile Day! To celebrate, we’d like to share Sharifa’s story with you.

Sharifa is one of many children whose smiles have been restored through cleft surgery at CURE. Thanks to the CUREkids program, we’ve been able to follow her story since she first came to CURE Niger in May.
