Bridging the gap...

Help CLEFT to bridge the gap and make a difference.

Who are we?

We are a charity focused on providing permanent, sustainable, ways to improve Cleft care in both the UK and overseas.

More about us

raised so far...




CLEFT is working with surgeons at the National Institute of Burns and Plastic Surgery (associated with Dhaka Medical College Hospital, Dhaka, Bangladesh) to establish a multidisciplinary, comprehensive cleft and craniofacial centre.

We believe that this centre can act as a model for a revolution in cleft care in Bangladesh. Truly comprehensive cleft care involves a great deal more than one or two operations in infancy.  Patients in the UK are cared for by all the specialists in the cleft team, from birth to adulthood. We want to ensure that, in the future, babies born with a cleft in Bangladesh have the same opportunities as those in the UK.
