International projects Bangladesh A day in the life of CLEFT The hard-working and devoted cleft team give their thoughts about life in Dhaka Medical College Hospital. The film gives a fascinating insight through the eyes of Papon (plastic surgeon), Hiron (ward boy), Lia (speech and language therapist), Mahfuz (orthodontist) and Dr Moumita (anaesthetist). Dr Moumita herself had a daughter born with a cleft palate. She says that this inspired her to work with cleft babies as she understands the feelings of a mother with a cleft baby. The compassion that each member of the team has towards their young patients is one of many things that makes this ward a special place.
