Help CLEFT to bridge the gap and make a difference.
CLEFT works with local surgeons and other specialists in several lower income countries to help them develop high quality multidisciplinary cleft centres. We do this by visiting and working with them regularly, helping to provide education and training and donating much-needed equipment. We do not pay for individual operations and we do not send large short-term expensive “parachute missions”. Our goal is to help local teams so that children born with clefts in these countries will have the same opportunities as those in the UK
Following Kaye Barker’s excellent fundraising effort in raising more than £3,000 by running the Uganda Marathon for CLEFT in June 2016, CLEFT purchased two sets of surgical instruments which Brian Sommerlad has taken to Kampala, Uganda.
