Sri Lanka – Lady Ridgeway Children’s Hospital and the Peradeniya Dental Institute
Brian Sommerlad and other members of the cleft team have been working with teams in Lady Ridgeway Children’s Hospital, Colombo, and in the Peradeniya Dental Institute, Kandy, for many years. We have donated equipment and visited to work with the surgeons and other team members annually for 16 years.
An exciting new development is that Brian Sommerlad and Debbie Sell will both be involved in the first national cleft lip and palate meeting to be held in Kandy, Sri Lanka, in August 2016. We believe this will be a major step forward and in some ways a culmination of our involvement in Sri Lanka. We hope that it will result in teams working together to continue to improve results.
