Meet Carlos, a 16-year-old patient at our cleft care centre in Tucumán, Argentina. Carlos recently began treatment at Fundación GAVINA where he has seen a wide range of cleft care specialists. Despite having an unrepaired cleft lip for many years, our team notes that Carlos is a very confident and social teenager with many friends. Carlos has remained positive and shows great will to succeed in life.  According to our team at GAVINA, he is a great example to other children born with cleft lip and palate.
