Summary

We provide safe access to surgery to infants and children from the most remote and disadvantaged areas of Ethiopia. For families in rural communities the cost and distance of reaching the capital prevents infants from accessing essential treatment and surgery for a cleft lip or palate, which left untreated impacts child development, social integration and the ability for them to reach their full potential.

Challenge

Cleft conditions impact child development and are the source of stigma and exclusion in rural communities of Ethiopia. Geographical constraints and the cost of reaching the capital makes it impossible for the vast majority of families to reach treatment without Project Harar's services. We break the hurdles in the way of families reaching treatment and provide practical, community specific solutions.

Solution

We work with local and regional health facilities to identify those who need cleft treatment. We provide safe transport, food and accommodation, on a journey that can span over two days, to and from a partner hospital, so that a child can receive an operation from an Ethiopian surgeon. We strive for comprehensive cleft care offering nutritional support and speech therapy.

Long-Term Impact

Access to comprehensive cleft care will ensure a child can grow to reach their full potential, including going to school. Our outreach work will help to build a better awareness of cleft in rural Ethiopia and help to break the negative stigma attached so that more children come forward for treatment and families are not excluded from their communities.
