What is CLEFT?
CLEFT is focused on providing permanent, sustainable ways to improve cleft care both in UK and overseas. This is done through sponsorship or research projects in the UK to help identify the likely causes of clefts and secondly, by supporting projects in lower income countries to to help provide long term treatment and care for less privileged people born with clefts.
