What We Do
In most developing countries, cleft lip and palate care is very limited. Where it does exist, the focus is often on surgery alone. Since 1999, TF has been working to increase access to comprehensive cleft care worldwide.
We believe that a child born with cleft lip and palate deserves to be supported every step of the way.
With your help, we support children throughout their cleft care journey. Our approach is to:
Provide comprehensive cleft to children, so they can thrive at home, at school, and in their communities.
Support families to help every child realize their full potential.
Build the capacity of local teams worldwide.
Partnering with Local Teams
To make this long-term approach possible, Transforming Faces partners with local teams in developing countries. We support these dedicated professionals by providing funding, guidance, innovation and medical training to strengthen their skills and complete the circle of cleft care for children and families.
