Dhaka Medical College Hospital We are working with Bangladeshi specialists at Dhaka Medical College Hospital to create a sustainable centre to treat children with cleft lip and palate. The videos below show some of the work that CLEFT does in Dhaka. So Far: We have helped set up and fund a dedicated ward and operating theatre for cleft patients. We have funded the appointment of the first cleft speech and language therapist and orthodontist in Bangladesh. We have trained Bangladeshi surgeons and other specialists in Bangladesh and in the UK Operating team in Dhaka What still needs to be done: More children need to be given free surgery. Each operation costs £40 More patients need to be given follow-up surgery and treatments. More Bangladeshi surgeons need to be trained to perform high quality surgery. Lifetime treatment costs £250 We are currently looking at establishing more specialist cleft centre in other cities such as Khulna, Sylhet and Chittagong.
