Gift of blooming smile!

“For attractive lips, Speak words of kindness”.

Wait, it sounds great. Imagine a baby ten months old with a smile that can wrap around the sun and a scream that can break the heart of even the most wicked person on earth. But, just as the moon has scars, so does this epitome of innocence. The infant was born with a cleft lip, and it breaks our heart to see a child who is nothing less than a divine ostracized for something he doesn’t even comprehend. This is the narrative of Zeeshan, who was born in the Salmara village of Assam. Asadul and Khaleda are the parents of the child. Before their baby
Zeeshan was born with a cleft; they had never seen one. They were relieved that Zeeshan’s sister, Ariyana Tamin treated him like any other child. However, his parents were concerned that they would never be able to afford the treatment he needed. This would have serious consequences for his future, so we began making inquiries immediately to see what options exist for families in their situation.

The baby struggled to eat because breastmilk would leak into his throat and nose through a hole in the roof of his mouth, causing him to choke. Zeeshan was constantly wailing from hunger and was on the verge of dying. His health was in serious danger. They were extremely worried about his future. When their neighbours unfairly blamed them and gossip about it, they don’t like to look at his face, it just added to the tension, and they think it is because of some miss deed by them. The family was fortunate to live with loving and supportive relatives. Thankfully, they were able to get help at a local childcare centre. The doctor recommended Mission Smile.

They couldn’t believe that at Mission Smile, all of their son’s cleft treatment would be free. The baby’s parents have all hopes in the surgery, and hope has the gift of miracles within itself.  After the
doctor scheduled surgery and provided them with all the information they needed to know about it. They can’t imagine the relief they felt when they took Zeeshan out, and his cleft was healed.  Mission Smile will do everything we can to do for the baby’s cleft surgery because we believe in doing what we can, where we are, with what we have. Our team encourages you to do a random act of kindness for children so that when they grow up, they can live a blessed and compassionate life as well.
