Bridging the gap...

Help CLEFT to bridge the gap and make a difference.


Arusha was born in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The single plastic surgeon in the children's hospital has more patients than he can treat. Our team has a long association with this surgeon. He has worked with us in the UK and members of our team have made many visits to hospitals in Sri Lanka. By working with him in extra operating sessions outside normal hours, we have been able to operate on many children such as Arusha and, at the same time, have continued our close collaboration with the team in Colombo. Here is Arusha before his lip repair and a year later when we repaired his palate.
