A University of Alabama student’s decision last fall has brought smiles to the faces of children around the world.

Hannah Brown and fellow students in the University of Alabama Operation Smile Club have something special to celebrate Sunday on International Children’s Day. In less than a year, they have raised money to provide life-changing cleft surgery for eight children internationally.

Brown, an aspiring speech pathologist, learned about Operation Smile through her studies as a communicative disorders major at UA. Formed in 1982, the global nonprofit is dedicated to providing free reconstructive cleft surgery to areas of the world where it’s needed most.
