Our volunteer team will head to Trujillo in May, 2019 to provide comprehensive cleft care to underserved patients in Peru.
Global Smile Foundation (GSF) is dedicated to providing first-class cleft care accessible to all patients regardless of geographic or socioeconomic barriers. There is a pressing need for sustainable cleft care in developing countries where the consequences of those conditions are devastating, if left untreated.
- Fathers often leave the family, believing their child or their marriage, has been cursed; parents will abandon their infant in the hospital, unable to cope with the future the child will face.
- Children with cleft are generally ostracised from society, unable to go to school or make friends.
- As adults with cleft lips or palates, they have little chance of making a living.
- Most children keep from one to five family members home caring for them, rather than earning wages to support the household.
Funds raised will go directly towards changing a life. A single cleft lip or palate repair can cost anywhere from $2000. This money will mean a child will be able to receive surgery and comprehensive treatment including dental procedures, speech therapy and psychosocial support.
