In 2012 a campaign was conducted by the Guizhou State Family Planning Association to provide an approximate count of un-repaired cleft lip and palate cases in the Guizhou Province. 1200 cases were found, and they subsequently signed an agreement with the China Population Welfare Foundation to treat these cases. Alliance for Smiles, as part of the Happy Smiles program, developed a plan with these two agencies to treat this backlog of 1200 patients over a three year period, and to eventually establish two Treatment Centers.
Zunyi is a large city in the Guizhou Province. During the October 2012 mission to Zunyi, initial steps were taken to establish a Treatment Center. Then in September 2013 the Center was officially dedicated.
