Together, we have the power to transform lives and gift children with the future they deserve. This June 8 to 14, 2024, Operation Rainbow Australia, in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Cebu and VisayasMed Hospital, embarks on a mission to provide free, life-changing surgeries. This year, we plan on enrolling 50-60 children suffering from cleft lip and palate in Cebu City. These surgeries are more than medical procedures; they are pathways to new beginnings, allowing children to smile, speak, and live without barriers.


Join us in this noble cause to not only heal physical wounds but also to mend spirits and strengthen communities. Your support as sponsors and donors is crucial in making this mission possible. Let's unite in compassion and generosity to make a lasting difference in the lives of these children and their families. Together, we can turn hope into reality and change futures, one smile at a time.

In the Philippines, over 4,000 children are born with cleft lip and/or palate every year.

Abounding in Love believes that free surgery should be attainable for all who need it.

Many Filipino children with unrepaired cleft are from extremely poor families.


Although there are organizations that provide free cleft lip and palate surgery, it's still a huge financial risk for a family living on less than $5 per day. This is not only due to travel expenses but also because their children are regularly denied surgery due to malnutrition or other health conditions. These barriers prevent thousands of children from getting the life-changing surgery they need.

Cleft lip/palate in the Philippines is a problem. Free surgery is the solution. Abounding in Love exists to fill the gap between them.

What We Do

1. We Find Children with Cleft

Our staff in the Philippines travels to municipal offices, clinics, and tiny “barangay” (neighborhood) authorities, to find children who need cleft lip or cleft palate surgery. Then we visit the family, talk to them, and discuss and document their needs.

“Abounding in Love provides transportation, lodging, healthy food, medical checkups, and other prerequisites for impoverished people affected by cleft so they can receive free, safe surgeries provided by organizations like Operation Smile”
