How you can help

A child’s cleft lip or cleft palate can be repaired for as little as £150 and in as few as 45 minutes, but your gift is more than a surgery. All of our supporters give renewed hope to children and families around the world.

Volunteers

Our medical volunteers span six continents and provide our patients with specialised care so they can live healthy and productive lives.

Our Volunteers

Introducing Lindsay Anderson

My first mission was to Hanoi, Vietnam – a mega mission and a very big team. It was overwhelming at first but everyone made me feel at ease and as soon as I saw the babies and children, I felt a massive sense of purpose.

“Every child that has a facial deformity is our responsibility. If we don’t take care of that child, there’s no guarantee that anyone else will.”
