Deutsche Cleft ABMSS started a five days search and awareness camp at various slums in the Hyderabad city on the eve of World Smile Day (6th October) last year. Among other cleft patients identified during the camp, we found two extremely needy cleft children called Ibrahim and Mehrin. Later, we visited their houses where we could learn about their families and came to know how their families had to overcome through lots of hardship from the community and the family, as their children were born with cleft.
The story of Ibrahim and Mehrin are testimonies of how cleft is still being perceived in our society and why we urge your support for the cause. We appealed for a support for Ibrahim and Mehrin’s cleft treatment as they needed it urgently. While we thank our donors for their timely and generous support, it is also important to share how your generous support positively impacted the two children’s lives. The timely support not only brought new smiles to them but also gave them a second chance to their lives.
Providing awareness & education about the cleft and facial deformities and its causes, prevention and solutions through conducting medical camps in the rural backward areas.
Speech and FFunctional therapycan be extremely effective for children with mild hypernasality, an articulation disorder, or speech delay. The goal of speech therapy will be to develop good speech habits as well as to learn how to produce sounds correctly.
Every child's first visit to us starts with a comprehensive care. We take the time to evaluate the unique facial and dental challenges that may be lurking, so that a custom program of treatment can be created.
At our project centres, every child gets the attention he or she needs, to bring out their best smile in order to lead a normal life.
