Smiling World's Trustees

Smiling World is made possible and supported by a network of wonderful, committed people who all share a common goal - and that is to make the world a better place. However, our mission will not be able to reach a single child if it wasn't for the especially dedicated key figures of the foundation.

Dr Raffaella Gabassi - Founder

Principal dentist at White Dental & Cosmetic Rooms in Chiswick and mother of two young children, Raffaella is the founder of Smiling World. Having always been interested in missionary work, it has been a life-long goal of hers to set up her own charity. After visiting Sierra Leone to do some relief work, it became apparent to her that this less fortunate country would benefit from such an establishment. And so the Smiling World Foundation was born. Raffaella has now also been appointed as field director for Teethsavers, our sister organisation, also based in Sierra Leone.


H.E. Edward Turay

His Excellency Mr Edward Turay is the High Commissioner of Sierra Leone for the UK. He is a member of parliament from the Bombali District in Sierra Leone and he is also a qualified lawyer. Mr Turay is a strong supporter of the charity, bridging our connection with the relevant government authorities in Sierra Leone.
