CSI Initiatives

African Resonance Business Solutions has been a proud supporter of The Smile Foundation since 2016.

The company selected the Foundation as its preferred Corporate Social Investment (CSI) partner because we felt we could help make a serious difference in the lives of thousands of children with facial conditions, improving their quality of life and helping them grow into a brighter future.

Smile Foundation is a South African non-governmental organisation with a comprehensive healthcare vision for children living with facial conditions.

Smile Foundation, together with the country’s Academic Hospitals, work together to put the smile back onto children’s faces with corrective facial reconstructive surgery and treatments. An idea that started off the back of a single letter to then-President Nelson Mandela in 2000 to help one child, has grown into an organisation operates in seven academic hospitals in South Africa which has changed the lives of more than 3 600 children with reconstructive surgery – and support – in the last 20 years.

While financial contributions help the Smile Foundation do its incredible work, the team at African Resonance also prioritise committing time, energy and resources to the children under their care, in order to make a difference in their lives. Volunteers from the company have visited the Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital to interact with the children who have benefitted from the Smile Foundation, spending time reading them stories, colouring in and building puzzles with them. We only hope that the impact our visit had on the children was as major as the one it had on our volunteers, with the bravery and perseverance of these children leaving a lasting impression on the team.

It's easy to get involved with the amazing work done by the Smile Foundation – and African Resonance looks forward to continuing to help them change the lives of thousands more children.
