There are over a million Cleft Children and Adults in India and only a few thousands of them are able to avail a corrective surgery for it. The surgery not only helps them to change their appearance but also helps them to get rid of physiological challenges that these children/adults face like difficulty in speaking, eating and drinking fluids. There are three challenges:



a. Awareness about a possible corrective surgery for Cleft Children and adults to help them become normal again.
b. Superstitions associated with children and infants born with this kind of condition.
c. Fear and hesitation associated with surgery

We have a dedicated program team who visits villages and works with the State Health Networks of Anganwadi and ASHA (Accredited Social Health Activist) workers to reach out to the remote villages to tackle these challenges. By creating awareness at village, block and district levels, training and regular meetings with ASHA workers, the program team identifies and does preliminary screening of Cleft children and Adults who then get transported to the centre for further medical examination and surgery and comprehensive care needed to fully recover from this painful yet correctable condition.
