At Cydcor, we take the concept of “people helping people” seriously, and for us, that idea extends beyond serving our clients to doing our part support the local and global community. Since 2010, Cydcor has partnered with Operation Smile, a volunteer-based organization dedicated to improving access to surgical care for children and adults with cleft conditions, to raise awareness and funds to ensure that no child is denied access to safe surgery.
For the past three decades, Operation Smile has mobilized medical teams to conduct surgical missions in underserved communities around the globe. As one of the oldest and largest organizations of its kind, Operation Smile provides free, safe surgical care to children and adults with cleft lip and cleft palate for whom treatment would not otherwise be an option. Children with cleft conditions often face social isolation and suffer from physical effects such as difficulty with eating and speaking. Thanks to Operation Smile, many of these children now have the opportunity to make friends, go to school, live healthy lives and reach their full potential.
Cydcor supports Operation Smile through a variety of fundraising events held throughout the year. The company has organized dining events, sports tournaments, special events, and more. Most notably, Cydcor holds an annual Day of Smiles event, through which more than 4,000 supporters including Cydcor team members and supporters from Cydcor’s network of independent sales companies reach out personally to the community through local fundraising events and in-person fundraising.
Since 2010, Cydcor has raised nearly $1,000,000 on behalf of Operation Smile, which is to heal more than 4,000 smiles… and counting. Team members and supporters from Cydcor’s network of independent sales companies have also participated in five medical missions to bring life-changing surgeries to children who deserve access to safe surgical care.
The surgeries Operation Smile provides transform not just smiles, but lives, and Cydcor is proud to help make these transformations possible.
