CLEFT LIP AND PALATE SURGERY CAMP TO BE HELD IN NANDI HILLS HOSPITAL
The County Government of Nandi in partnership with BelaRisu Foundation and Smile Train annual Cleft lip and Palate Camp will be held on October 23 at the Nandi Hills County Hospital. An elite group of surgeons from the County and BelaRisu Foundation, will perform corrective cleft lip and palate surgery free-of-cost on patients who visit the camp.
The main objective of the camp is to reach out to children with cleft lips all over the County and beyond who do not or cannot seek treatment due to lack of proper information and awareness or financial constraints.
There are a number of children in Nandi County with cleft lips. Such children can’t eat or speak properly and are often denied the right to attend school.
The camp will provide and sponsor free treatment and other medical requirements to cleft lip patients along with free diagnostic facilities, speech therapy, free counselling and rehabilitation services.
