Dusit Smiles

One of Dusit's top CSR priorities is the well-being and health of children. Dusit Smiles is a CSR programme developed in partnership with Operation Smile, a charitable organisation that mobilises a force of medical professionals to provide safe, effective reconstructive surgery and related medical care for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.

Dusit Smiles not only enables the company to raise funds in support of Operation Smile, but it also promotes awareness among clients, partners, and employees through trainings, visits, government relations, and marketing and public relations.
