Costa Rican Association for Children with Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate
raised on GlobalGiving
* Amounts in US Dollars
Our mission is to provide the necessary resources so that all children born with malformation Cleft Lip/Palate (all over the country) can recover in a complete and thorough manner.
Although we are an independent association, we work together with the National Children's Hospital of Costa Rica (which is where they perform surgical treatment) in order to have a multidisciplinary equipment, needed for a proper rehabilitation.
In Costa Rica, each year, we received an approximately of 85-90 babies with the Cleft Lip/Palate, so our effort is reflected in the smile of all recovered children, but our mission continues standing with each new baby born that presents the malformation.
