Hi, my name’s Lily and I’m at the University of Manchester, having spent my pre-clinical years at the University of St Andrews medical school. I am passionate about volunteering and fundraising for CLEFT, as I believe every child born with craniofacial abnormalities deserves an equal opportunity to safe and appropriate medical and surgical care to prevent speech, feeding and societal difficulties. In some children around the world, these congenital deformities allow for easy infection access and put a risk to life. Likewise, the ability for the child to feed with a cleft lip palate can be impossible, again leading to potential mortality. CLEFT sets up sustainable and multidisciplinary teams around the world to give these children the care and surgery they need, whilst researching the latest methods to prevent and treat these. Join our ever growing student ambassador team to help make a difference to these children too!
