Cleft Lips and Palates

October 11, 2012

In West Africa, Mercy Ships works in partnership with the Ministry of Health, local physicians and other charities to provide life-enhancing and, in many cases, life-saving surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates.

This condition is easily repaired in the developed world, but babies in the developing world have little access to corrective surgery. As a result. they suffer from malnourishment, and the children who survive are often rejected and abandoned. In addition, specialized surgical training is provided to local African surgeons.
