Smile Train Global Ambassador, Catriona Gray will join this year’s selection committee as an official judge for the Miss Universe Colombia 2020 pageant.

The crowned Miss Universe Colombia will become a local ambassador for the organization’s charity partner, Smile Train. As a part of this charitable partnership, the reigning title holder will work closely with Smile Train to help raise awareness for children with clefts locally and around the world.

While visiting Barranquilla, Catriona plans to safely visit Smile Train’s local partners and meet some of the beneficiaries supported by the charity. As a Global Ambassador, Catriona has been focused on using her platform to raise awareness for children with clefts. In fact, she has previously visited Smile Train’s programs in the Philippines and in Brazil to see firsthand all of the incredible work done by the organization locally. In addition, she has attended several virtual speech sessions with cleft patients, launched a Public Service Announcement (PSA) for finding patients and is currently the face of the beepTM card awareness campaign.

Globally, 540 babies are born with a cleft every day. Smile Train is committed to providing access to proper cleft care treatment and financial assistance even during the pandemic. In addition to life-changing surgery, Smile Train’s local medical partners provide essential care, such as speech therapy, emotional support, nutrition services, and orthodontic care, to ensure that children have the opportunity to lead full and productive lives.

Smile Train, with the support of its donors and partners around the world, has supported safe and quality cleft care for more than 1.5 million children in need for the past 21 years. In the Philippines, Smile Train has supported cleft surgeries for more than 60,000 children since 2001.
