It is because of the support of donors like you, every year, we can provide around 3,000 Free comprehensive Surgeries to children and adults suffering from this painful yet correctable deformity. Cleft is a congenital deformity that affects 1 in 700 infants in India. These children are born with a gap in their lips and palates apart from looking different face problems in breastfeeding, eating, speaking, drinking etc. as a normal kid. All of these challenges can be resolved by surgery and comprehensive care. In India there are an estimated 1 million Cleft children and adults.
We thank you for choosing to support the cause of Cleft. We would like to add your mail id to our newsletters so that we can keep you informed about our activities and developments. If you like our work, please share about us with others in your network.
