Sohag sits on the west bank of the Nile in Egypt. There are not enough surgeons to treat the number of cleft patients here. CLEFT has been training surgeons there since 2010, improving results by collaborating with cleft pioneers, such as plastic surgeon and CLEFT Chairman, Mr Brian Sommerlad.
The CLEFT workshop is held annually in Sohag.
Mr Sommerlad's annual visit to Sohag, Egypt, is an opportunity to train the dedicated cleft team and to see new patients.
