Smile Train Launches PSA with Global Ambassador Catriona Gray for National Cleft Awareness Month

“When I met children and their parents, I saw how grateful they were for the help they received. I felt an incredible motivation to continue raising awareness for Smile Train. Working with Smile Train has given me a great avenue to use my voice and make a difference in the lives of children born with a cleft. Can you believe that there were more than1,000 Filipino babies born with a cleft since community quarantine began in the Philippines? Through this PSA I hope that parents will know that Smile Train is there for them.” ~Catriona Gray, Miss Universe 2018 and Global Ambassador, Catriona Gray, Smile Train

Catriona Gray first worked with Smile Train during her reign as Miss Universe. Smile Train, the world’s leading cleft charity, continues to provide comprehensive cleft care services for individuals in need in the Philippines and in 90+ countries around the world. With the help of their Global Ambassador, Catriona Gray, Smile Train launched a Public Service Announcement (PSA) in recognition of National Cleft Awareness Month.


A baby is born with a cleft every three minutes, even during this unfortunate time. With this, Smile Train, the world's leading cleft organization, continues to work hard to provide assistance and cleft care services to Filipino individuals with cleft around the country.


In line with National Cleft Awareness Month, through a Public Service Announcement (PSA) with Global Ambassador Catriona Gray, we hope we can knock on many people's hearts to lend a hand in this great cause as well as give comfort to families with relatives with a cleft that Smile Train is here for them. 


(https://www.facebook.com/SmileTrainPhilippines/videos/275415790452628/) With a baby born with a cleft every three minutes, even during a pandemic, it is Smile Train’s hope that more patients and their families will know that Smile Train is here to help them.


In March of this year, Ms. Gray was in La Union during a screening for cleft patients hosted by the provincial government. Recently, she participated in a public online discussion with Smile Trainon speech therapy where viewers learned about the challenges to produce sounds and words for children born with a cleft.


Smile Train continues to provide comprehensive cleft care services around the country even as community quarantine is in place.
