One special event of Miss Universe 2011 in Sao Paulo, Brazil is Operation Smile. For this, reigning Miss Universe Ximena Navarrete plus four delegates were selected by the organizers to take part in the same. Miss Philippines Shamcey Supsup, Brazil Priscila Machado, China Luo Zilin, and Venezuela Vanessa Goncalves were chosen as Ambassadors for Operation Smile. Each one of them were asked to relate their thoughts and/or fondness with the organization.

In line with her participation in the Operation Smile’s free surgery mission which helped three people suffering cleft palate, Supsup couldn’t help but indulge in the sense of fulfillment it gave her.

She explained, “You could see them so happy to find their children well and cured. So it was a fulfilling experience. God has really placed me here for a higher purpose that is to help and give hope.”

According to the Official Website of Operation Smile, the charity organization helps in healing children’s smiles around the world. With a presence in around 60 countries, it endeavors to give a better life for the little ones with facial deformities and whose parents cannot afford to have them removed.
