Mary Northmore's honors were bestowed at Buckingham Palace by Charles, Prince of Wales, in a solemn ceremony on June 22, 2011, in acknowledgement of her role in the life-saving work with the Bali Smiles Foundation (Yayasan Senyum Bali), which provides surgical treatment Indonesians, primarily children, suffering from cranio-facial injuries or malformations.

Working with teams of dedicated medical specialists from Adelaide, South Australia and Indonesia, the Bali Smiles Foundation treats patients with disfiguring and often life-threatening medial conditions. To date more than 1,000 lives have been transformed by the medical miracles made possible by Mary Northmore and her team.

Displaying her characteristic charm and modesty, Mary describes her feelings during the awards ceremony, saying: “I was always conscious of all the people who were with me: doctors, donors, staff, volunteers and well-wishers of all kinds — a big organization. It was not Mary Northmore receiving the MBE, but all these people with me.”
