Story

Our main aim is to raise enough money so that a child with a cleft palate or lip could get surgery.

One of our patients, from the islands of Madagascar, will be representing our team.  

Her name is Clara, and this is her story. 

Clara was born with a severe cleft lip and cleft palate. Her mother didn’t dare to breastfeed her. She even refused to acknowledge Clara as her own child. 

In their tiny village in the highlands of Madagascar, their neighbors would quietly gossip about Clara and her condition. Every time Clara’s mother caught word of that talk – the result of the social stigma associated with cleft in that community – it deepened her sense of shame. 

Clara’s father, Dede, who accepted and loved Clara unconditionally, refused. And so Clara’s mother walked away from her family, and they haven’t heard from her since. 

On that day, Dede decided he would do everything he could to find a solution for his daughter. He wanted her to feel the love of others, instead of being feared and isolated.  

It would take him six years.   

Children all around the world are born with a cleft lip or palate every minute.We hope that you would like to help them smile.
