In the summer of 2013, a child of a few hours old, with cleft lip and palate was born in a remote village in the Bekaa valley. The parents saw the condition as untreatable and a social burden. Lacking the knowledge and awareness of the available treatments for cleft lip and palate, the parents abandoned the baby along a sidewalk. Fortunately, a passerby heard cries coming from the suitcase and took the baby to a local monastery.
News of the baby's situation was picked up by Dr. Ghassan Abu Sitta, head of plastic surgery at the American University of Beirut Medical Center.
The Global Smile Foundation MENA, in coordination with Dr. Abu Sitta and the American University of Beirut Medical Center, will provide the necessary care for this baby and other underprivileged patients in the Middle East and North African region.
Join us at iris on the 29th of January to help spread the smile.
All funds from this event will go towards cleft surgeries performed by Global Smile Foundation MENA.
