Here at Smile International the more we see the need in the countries where we work, the more we are also seeing the need increase here in the UK.

Our desire, purpose and quite simply, why we do what we do, is to turn tears into smiles and it doesn’t matter where this might be. When people need help, they need help, when they need support and  encouragement, we want to be there for them and when they need a reason to smile again, we want to help them find it. 

Even though we will still be focusing on helping the poorest of the poor around the world, we feel that we must do something to help support the needs of our own country by utilising what we have learnt over the years through our FEED programmes – Feeding, Educating, Empowering and Developing. This is an exciting step for us here at Smile International and one we hope you will join with us in supporting. 

We will be supporting various homeless charities in Peterborough as they have the skills, resources and experience in how to manage the different levels of care required and we would very much like to help people here in the UK to smile again.

So, if you would like to support this project then please mark your donation “for UK only” in the comments section of our donate form.
