The James and Paula Coburn Foundation has been a devoted patron of Operation Smile and the organization’s dedication to helping improve the health and lives of children from more than 60 countries. Through financial support, JPCF has been honored to assist in their efforts to provide free surgical procedures for children and young adults born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.

Paula and James Coburn were strong advocates of Operation Smile and the highly effective programs and partnerships the organization was able to create. JPCF continues to financially support those programs and the long-term plan to build sufficiency in resource poor environments and empower their locals to treat their own communities.
