Dignity begins with a simple smile. At Saint Jimmy's, we believe all children deserve to live with dignity. We have partnered with one of the leading volunteer-based medical charity program, Operation Smile Canada to help those little ones suffering from cleft lip, cleft palate or other facial deformities. They are a part of the largest volunteer-based medical charity providing free cleft surgery for children. With help from donors, volunteers and corporate partners, they transform lives with surgeries that can take as little as 45 minutes and cost as little as $240.
Operation Smile began in the United States in 1982, and since have grown to become a global network of foundations and have together provided hundreds of thousands of free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities.
In 2011, Operation Smile Canada was founded. Since then, caring and generous supporters have helped provide thousands of surgeries for children around the world living in countries where little ones with clefts have suffered for too long. Saint Jimmy’s Coffee is proud to extend our ongoing support towards Operation Smile Canada.

We are excited to work with Doctors Without Borders Canada. They are a vital link between their work on the front lines of emergencies around the world and the network of supporters, humanitarians and medical professionals in Canada who make it possible.
Doctors Without Borders helps in many ways. Their teams see millions of patients every year and their planes can be loaded and flown into crisis areas within 24 hours. They have logistics centers and warehouses around the globe where they buy, test and store equipment including thousands of tents, shelter kits, non-perishable items, vehicles, communications equipment, power supplies, water-processing facilities and nutritional supplements.
In some cases, there is no functioning health care infrastructure and they build or renovate clinics, introduce ambulance services or set up long term treatment programs. They have developed pre-packaged disaster kits, including a complete surgical theatre, an obstetrics kit and an inflatable hospital. These kits are now used as models by emergency relief organizations worldwide.
Doctors Without Borders constantly deliver humanitarian aid projects, from disaster response to long-term medical programs which stretch over decades.
