We know that it is a stressful time to be a parent of a child with a cleft — especially if you live in a village or neighbourhood under lockdown due to Covid, or you have lost your means of earning a living.
Children born with cleft lip and palate deserve to be supported every step of the way. Comprehensive cleft care makes that possible.
Comprehensive care includes access to safe, timely surgery
Ongoing speech therapy to develop clear speech and self-confidence
Social support to help patients and their families along the way
The goal is children who are happy, healthy, and confident!
