Operation Smile Open their UAE Office

If you haven’t yet heard of Operation Smile UAE, then let Guardian Wealth Management’s Gavin Pluck and Hamzah Shalchi explain exactly who they are and what they do.

As you’re probably already aware, at Guardian Wealth Management our motto is to create wealth, preserve wealth, and pass wealth on – and our independent financial advisors are always keen to show their support to worthwhile causes; allowing us to pass much needed wealth on to some amazing international organisations.

Operation Smile UAE is an incredible children’s charity which offers free surgery in order to help young children to enjoy a better quality of life. With one child born every 3 minutes with a cleft lip, cleft palate or other debilitating facial deformity, Operation Smile UAE exists to bring a smile back to these children’s faces. This kind of facial deformity can create many issues such as hindering the ability to eat, speak, socialise and even smile – things that most of us take for granted.

Since its conception in 1982, Operation Smile UAE and the additional 60 countries that it operates in, allows these children much-needed medical treatment and the chance to undertake important surgery to give them their quality of life back. Gavin Pluck and Hamzah Shalchi have been taken in by the plight of these children and were delighted to attend the grand opening of Operation Smile’s UAE office on October 24th, 2011.

Gavin Pluck and Hamzah Shalchi – Supporting Operation Smile UAE

At the Operation Smile UAE opening, Gavin Pluck and Hamzah Shalchi were overjoyed to present this fantastic charity with a cheque in order to help support their humbling work. Having had much experience of working with expats and their families in Dubai and throughout the UAE, Gavin Pluck and Hamzah Shalchi felt that it was important to make a contribution from Guardian Wealth Management to help the continuing good work of Operation Smile, so that they can continue to raise awareness and offer vital surgery to these children.
