Operation Smile, the large US charity that provides facial reconstructive surgery to children in the developing world, has been accused of neglecting safety standards during operations.

The accusations, sent anonymously by e-mail, have already reported to have damaged the charity’s fundraising. The charity said that it was “the target of what can only be described as a vicious smear campaign,” arguing that the charges were “false and grossly distorted.” Read the report by Martin Kettle in The Guardian.
