Hi all,

Some of you have heard about us from different sources. For the rest, we are an unknown entity on the net.
What exactly is smilemaker? And does it have any connection with the SMILEMAKER HALL OF FAME IN THE US of A that you read about in the SMILE TRAIN, New York City?

First of all, smilemaker is the story of a hybrid guitar ,created in Yemen during the war of March 2015 and later, custom built at a Fender workshop in Shandong (pics).The author designed the hybrid in a bomb shelter during those horrific bombing campaigns close to his office. It was shipped to the city of New York where the author lived with his brother Namgyal for some time during the invasion,and near total annihilation of Yemen by some  Arab nations and their western allies. 

Second of all, yes, smilemaker is the inspiration for America's Smilemaker Hall of Fame @ Smile Train NYC. That is the story of the real smilemaker. Later on, it included all those wonderful smilemakers who spent countess hours in cleft lip and palate missions . Bona* is also a longtime smilemaker for Arabia Felix and UNHCR Somalian refugee camps in Yemen,and the Founder /Plastic Surgeon of Yemen Smile and US Smile Train Programmes in Yemen Arabia/International Trainer @ Ministry of Planning Yemen/MOH Sana'a for Arab and expat surgeons over 17 years.Thousands of plastic surgery operations and trainings were done pro bono.

 In April 2012, Yemen Smile was voted (San Francisco/ Beijing ) as one of the best success stories in the history of US Smile Train USA overseas cleft lip and palate missions worldwide.

It is all inclusive,and sort of provides that flat world for people from all walks of life. Of course,it also includes a UNISEX skincare line LLC in Queens designed by the author,following a word of advice,over dinner at  Longwood Avenue in Aug 2012. The trigger was, "you should go aesthetic" by long time Yemen Smile mentor Prof John B Mulliken of Childrens MA. 

So enjoy our smilemaker blogs y'all .This blogsite will include a series on craniofacial humour to keep creative juices flowing.
